Product description


Fox's vivid, sensual prose is - fittingly - as seductive as a siren's song, drawing you into a shadowy Victorian world of obsession and guilt... An intoxicating follow-up to 2011's acclaimed THE SOMNAMBULIST. Recommended to fans of Sarah Waters (HEAT)

Fox's story of obsessive love is memorable and unusual (SUNDAY TIMES)

The author behind the Virtual Victorian blog has followed up her Channel 4 Book Club choice THE SOMNAMBULIST with this Wilkie Collins-style sensation novel... An obvious comparison is with early Sarah Waters...The glee with which Fox approaches her material is infectious. All Victorian life is here ...Intriguing. (GUARDIAN)

A fabulous foray into a shadowy Victorian world (WOMAN AND HOME)

This is a modern Gothic novel with a beguiling story at its heart. Big themes of love, obsession, betrayal, tragedy and madness fill the pages, as a shadowy underworld collides with the art and literature elite. Fox weaves her story with dramatic style and allure, creating a cast of enticing characters and an intriguing plot that I couldn't get enough of (The White Company 'What We're Reading')

Transports us to the Victorian squalor of London's East End for a tale of illegitimacy, incest and theatricality with so many twists that you'll want to read it in one sitting (COSMOPOLITAN on the SOMNAMBULIST)

Vividly compelling, dark and dazzling (Katherine Webb on THE SOMNAMBULIST)

[THE SOMNAMBULIST] has taken me to new worlds, is riven with suspense, has made my imagination wander, and my fingers itch to turn the last page (JoJo Moyes)

Expose[s] the mouldy underbelly of Victoriana... the effect can be deliciously unsettling. (THE INDEPENDENT ON SUNDAY)

Weaving an intoxicating tale that is both sinister and seductive as it depicts passion, betrayal and obsessive love in every guise, the novel certainly captures the less-palatable aspects of Victorian society with sensuous conviction (GOOD BOOK GUIDE)

Book Description

A bewitching historical gothic tale of obsessive love 'recommended to fans of Sarah Waters' [Heat] from the author of the highly acclaimed TV Book Club-selected THE SOMNAMBULIST.
