Rezension:

This is a fascinating, fast-paced, beautifully written book and well worth reading. (Carol Westron Promoting Crime Blog)

Fox's clear and thorough historical research is clearly woven into every seam of this rich and imaginative novel. (Antonia Charlesworth THE BIG ISSUE IN THE NORTH)

The plot of this novel is intricate and beautifully turned, and echoes of Frances Hodgson Burnett and George MacDonald Fraser are entirely intentional - Fox's raids on the story-box cleverly enhance the sense of mystery ( THE TIMES)

A richly textured, highly coloured and entirely pleasurable read ( METRO)

Dark secrets, hidden pasts and childhood mysteries are the focus in this sensual melodrama...an entertaining slice of Victoriana, rich in historical detail ( MARIE CLAIRE)

With just as many twists and turns as Wilkie Collins aat his unpredictable best, Fox's take on the Victorian mystery novel will transport you to a world of intrigue and superstition . . . A gem of a read ( THE LADY)

The author captures the essence of Victorian life in this richly textured novel...hugely enjoyable. If you love all things Victorian, you will love this ( HISTORICAL NOVEL SOCIETY)

Beautifully turned and very beguiling . . . Fox cleverly weaves in real characters such as the widowed Queen Victoria and the Maharajah Duleep Singh, with Indian myths and legends, to produce a terrifically engrossing read ( SAGA MAGAZINE)

Delights in the underworld and exotica of Victorian Britain...Memorable and unusual ( SUNDAY TIMES)

A dark enthralling story... I was totally engrossed! ( ESSENTIALS)

A shadowy sensual world... [a] beguiling, imaginative and original tale ( HELLO! MAGAZINE)
