9780571302697: Kitty Peck and the Music Hall Murders

Limehouse, 1880: Dancing girls are going missing from "Paradise" - the criminal manor with ruthless efficiency by the ferocious Lady Ginger. Seventeen-year-old music hall seamstress Kitty Peck finds herself reluctantly drawn into a web of blackmail, depravity, and murder when The Lady devises a singular scheme to discover the truth. But as Kitty's scandalous and terrifying act becomes the talk of London, she finds herself facing someone even more deadly and horrifying than The Lady. Bold, impetuous, and blessed with more brains than she cares to admit, it soon becomes apparent that it's up to the unlikely team of Kitty and her stagehand friend, Lucca, to unravel the truth and ensure that more girls do not meet with a similar fate. But are Kitty's courage and common sense and Lucca's book learning a match for the monster in the shadows? Their investigations take them from the gin-fuelled halls and doss houses of the East End to the champagne-fuelled galleries of the West End. Take nothing at face value: Kitty is about to step out on a path of discovery that changes everything . . .

About the Author:

Kate Griffin was born within the sound of Bow bells, making her a true-born cockney. She has worked as an assistant to an antiques dealer, a journalist for local newspapers, and now works for The Society for the Protection of Ancient Buildings. Kate's maternal family lived in Victorian Limehouse and her grandmother told her many stories of life around the docks. Kate lives in St Albans.

Review:

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
