Conclusion. 

This is a timely guide to the flourishing field of scholarship on Victorian sensation fiction. Cox offers an authoritative overview of key trends in criticism, from the early recovery of the genre to current debates. An invaluable resource for students and academics alike. – Anne-Marie Beller, Loughborough University, UK
Jessica Cox’s excellent Readers’ Guide to Victorian Sensation Fiction offers an intelligently structured and eminently accessible discussion of crucial aspects of these novels, from the debates engendered by contemporary reviews to the ways in which sensation fiction engaged matters of class, empire, sexuality, and the female body. The book should find its way into - and will likely become indispensable to - innumerable courses on the Victorian sensation novel. – Sean Grass, Rochester Institute of Technology, USA
