The Quincunx (The Inheritance of John Huffam) is the epic first novel of Charles Palliser. It takes the form of a Dickensian mystery set in early 19th century England, but Palliser has added the modern attributes of an ambiguous plot and unreliable narrators. Many of the puzzles that are apparently solved in the story have an alternative solution in the subtext.

That Palliser succeeds in capturing this distant world of Victorian fiction is impressive enough for openers
Compulsively readabl. ascinatin. novel that is not only in the Victorian tradition, but beyond i. Its plot is as complex as the labyrinths of ‘Bleak House’ or ‘The Woman in White,’ and in its hero, John Huffam, Palliser has created a character who combines the two greatest qualities of the Victorian protagonist. Few novelists these days have the courage and strength to write a novel of this length, depth, breadth and imagination. That Palliser succeeds in capturing this distant world of Victorian fiction is impressive enough for openers. That he makes The Quincunx a gripping read throughout most of its length is practically miraculous.
An extraordinary modern novel in the Victorian tradition, Charles Palliser has created something extraordinary-a plot within a plot within a plot of family secrets, mysterious clues, low-born birth, high-reaching immorality, and, always, always the fog-enshrouded, enigmatic character of 19th century-London itself.
