Terrific debut novel ... Victorian London has never been better illustrated ... if this standard keeps up, we have a major new talent on our hands. (Virginia Blackburn Sunday Express
Occasionally a new writer bursts onto the scene with almost explosive force ... if [Griffin] maintains this superbly high standard we have a major new talent on our hands. Her hugely entertaining debut, set in the squalor, filth and depravity of Victorian Limehouse is all things to all readers - almost gothic in its intensity, but full of shades of dark and light, combining the macabre and wit of the music halls with a rattling action yarn which will appeal to historical readers, crime readers and people who just like a really well written adventure story ... the book is an absolutely first class read and I shall be surprised if there's a better debut this year. (Crime Review
Kitty's narrative voice ... is sharply memorable and deserves to be heard in a further adventure. (Nick Rennison Sunday Times
A top whodunnit. (Essentials magazine
Kitty Peck and the Music Hall Murders, by Kate Griffin, is a deliciously atmospheric and exciting Victorian mystery.
