A Monstrous Force follows Elson Owlsley, an unskilled worker, as he joins the newly formed London Metropolitan Police in hopes of providing a better life for his wife and unborn child. While he initially plans to keep his head down and follow orders, a string of attacks on lower class individuals arouses his suspicion, particularly after his superiors ignore a murder, insisting that the victim was probably a criminal who deserved what he got. When Elson begins his investigation into the deaths, he soon discovers that the murderer is more than a human serial killer; it can’t be considered human. This work of historical fantasy illustrates how monster theory can be applied to historical and modern issues.
