Product description

Review

[A] gripping blend of the Georgian gothic and the forensic thriller (Independent)

A true force in historical fiction (Daily Mail)

The pleasure lies in the steady unfurling of a period crime series (1871) that doesn't rely on declamatory villains and rhubarbing local colour (Christopher Fowler)

Stylish, enigmatic and wonderfully atmospheric. It's a story of secrecy and shame, reason and passion, that resonates long after you reach the final page (Francis Wheen)

Deliciously chilling and dangerous. The plot and characters are absolutely mesmerising, drawing you in to their world like the opium itself (Karen Maitland, author of Company of Liars)

The Paris Winter is in another class altogether... The vivid description of life in the Belle ?poque - whether of the rich upper classes and their servants; or students, artists and members of the Parisian underworld - the plausible plot, and a sensitive understanding of art and artists make this a fascinating novel that I read in a single sitting and admired greatly (Literary Review)
