Product description

Review

A compelling slice of early Victorian gothic . Vivid and well researched, this book is an evocative portrait of a society that punishes women who dare to contravene social norms . as well as a splendid mystery with suitably melodramatic flourishes (Guardian)

The Silent Companions was a chillingly note-perfect take on Victorian gothic and [Purcell] makes a brilliant return to the genre with this much-anticipated tale ... Heart-pounding . A classic Victorian tale of murder most foul, twisted with a curious supernatural thread (Stylist)

The Corset [sent] chills shooting down my spine ... Nods to the classic gothic novel and Sarah Waters's Affinity (Red)

This gothic chiller casts an addictive spell (Sunday Mirror)

Intricate, atmospheric and chilling - with a wonderfully dark premise at its heart (Woman & Home)

Phantasmic thrills ... A true page-turner . Neatly crafted and compelling . The story ticks along at a good pace, with a spine-tingling revelation every few pages (Times Literary Supplement)

[A] thrilling, chilling Gothic tale . [A] deliciously dark mystery (Psychologies)

Chilling ... All but the most cynical will find it hard to stop turning the pages (Observer)

The Silent Companions was a gothic masterpiece and The Corset follows with confidence ... 16-year-old Ruth is on trial for murder but finds herself on the receiving end of Dorothea Truelove's charitable ministrations ... their joint narrative twists and turns, leading readers to the most haunting of endings (Emerald Street)

Deliciously creepy and atmospheric with a gripping plot, this book will disturb your sleep. And I didn't see THAT ending coming (Sarah J. Harris, author of 'The Colour of Bee Larkham’s Murder')
