A First World Edition hardback with a stated ‘This First World Edition published 2019 in Great Britain’. Read once very carefully. Pictorial boards. The dust jacket is complete but un-priced. This is the norm now for books published by Severn House.
A Gaslight mystery featuring Charles Dickens and Wilkie Collins.
Synopsis: “When Inspector Field shows his friend Charles Dickens the body of a young woman dragged from the River Thames, he cannot have foreseen that the famous author would immediately recognise the victim as Isabella Gordon, a housemaid he had tried to help through his charity. Nor that Dickens and his fellow writer Wilkie Collins would determine to find out who killed her.
Who was Isabella blackmailing, and why? Led on by fragments of a journal discovered by Isabella’s friend Sesina, the two men track the murdered girl’s journeys from Greenwich to Snow Hill, from Smithfield Market to St Bartholomews, and put their wits to work on uncovering her past.
But what does Sesina know that she is choosing not to tell them? And is she doomed to follow in the footsteps of the unfortunate Isabella . . . ?
