A bloodthirsty novel set in Glasgow amongst aging stone buildings, at the time of fighting-dogs and rat baiting pits that was legal, to escape from boring jobs and boring lives.  Aristocrats, commoners, rich and poor, in need to be entertained, a great many bloodthirsty-fans followed dog fighting, a popular blood-curdling sport.  That provided highs of thrill chills, which came with attitude.  Animals are ten a penny.  There’s always one ready to replace it.  They believed this was the way for animals to be sacrificed.  Conditioned by their environment to shut it out.  Victorian Britain is full of shady characters that are hard, rough, tough, and there were less and less nice people.  Kindness with goodness stayed in deep shadows.  That portrayed villains good and bad with evil intentions, while others that are appreciated sold life dirt-cheap.  A dark dark side of Great Britain’s long history that you can’t keep in the dark, so many dark deeds had been committed.

I’ve simplified it for easy reading—to entertain.  Historical horror (word count 154, 000)
