Product description

Review

Chillingly memorable...an extraordinary thriller - Tess Gerritsen

[An] audacious mix of cultural gloss and uncomplicated, straight-ahead storytelling. The multi-layered nuance of Peter Ackroyd and the buttonholing narrative grasp of Stephen King are stirred into the mix. Although such a combination shouldn't really work, Robertson makes the various elements coalesce to striking effect - Independent

Robertson skillfully interweaves heavyweight social and political themes with Crowther's journey of familial redemption... A well-researched and executed treat for lovers of the historical genre - Shots magazine

This series, launched after Robertson won a Telegraph writing competition, continues to excel' - Daily Telegraph

[An] audacious mix of cultural gloss and uncomplicated, straight-ahead storytelling. The multi-layered nuance of Peter Ackroyd and the buttonholing narrative grasp of Stephen King are stirred into the mix - Independent

A new Imogen Robertson book is fast becoming something of an event. Both Anatomy of Murder and Instruments of Darkness have won her many fans, and this follow-up does not disappoint... The characters are enticing and the plot absorbing, with a wealth of late 18th century historical detail - Daily Mail
