She was hung high in a cage night after night in the old music halls, pirouetting on a swing all while wearing a little slip of an outfit. Right fancy piece she was, with a figure on display that would make yer ole ma blush.
And she used to sing this song — well, that would make yer ole ma blush and send yer gran straight to apoplexy. She really were the talk of the town, with the proper newspapers and the fancy nobs all giving their time to her. Blackmail it was for poor Kitty. She and her scar-faced itie friend, Lucca, hunting down some dirty old fiend who were carving his way through these pretty young things — much like old Jack did a few years later, though with a bit more finesse than our Jack had, even down to the kind of notes he sent.
Mar 31, Phrynne rated it really liked it. I enjoyed this book very much. Excellent descriptions of old London, nicely paced action and an entertaining and strong heroine. Must admit to slight confusion from time to time when the author backtracked in time within the same chapter. I had to backtrack myself and reread a few paragraphs to sort things out.
I also had to read the end twice to decide what had happened. But maybe that was just me. This is the author's first book and I look forward to more. View 1 comment. Sep 16, K. Coles rated it it was amazing Shelves: historical-fiction.
This was a real treat to read. Loved the seedy atmosphere, the shabby world of London music halls. The writing is fab, the story entertaining and absorbing, the characters real and well-rounded. Kitty Peck is immensely likeable, as is her friend, the lovely Lucca, but there are some truly dodgy characters here too - from Lady Ginger, opium-smoking recluse who runs the 'Paradise' empire from her lair, to Fitzy, the abusive manager of The Gaudy.
All memorable, believable characters. Kitty's beloved This was a real treat to read.
Kitty's beloved brother, Joey, has been missing for two years and is presumed dead, but Lady Ginger seems to know otherwise. All Kitty has to do to see him again, is to find out what has happened to four music halls girls who have mysteriously vanished. From that beginning, it's a non-stop adventure.

Great fun. I know I give a lot of five star reviews, but that's because, if I'm not enjoying a book I simply stop reading it and move on - life's too short and all that. Will definitely be reading more about Kitty and her world Jul 21, Marguerite Kaye rated it it was amazing.
I loved this so much, I just want to shout go and read it!!!! I so wish I could have written it. It's funny, original, gutsy. It twists and turns and takes you down some very sordid back alleys of London. It's a genuine old-fashioned whodunit with a genuinely unique as far as my reading goes anyway detective who is a trapeze artiste. It combines lots of Victorian pastiche such as opium smoking and mysterious Chinamen, with some truly fabulously atmospheric writing that brings the slums of Vict I loved this so much, I just want to shout go and read it!!!!
It combines lots of Victorian pastiche such as opium smoking and mysterious Chinamen, with some truly fabulously atmospheric writing that brings the slums of Victorian London alive in a way that makes them not Dickensianly menacing but intriguing. You know it's an awful place, but you want to go there and see for yourself. Okay, so there are elements of the plot that stretch the imagination a bit, but it's gothic, you expect that.
Did I say I loved this book? Historical readers, crime readers, people who like shades of light and dark combined with the macabre of the music hall and the wit too, this is for you. And for everyone else. I'm gushing, but this book deserves it. Go and read it.
