A servant and former slave is accused of murdering her employer and his wife in this astonishing historical thriller that moves from a Jamaican sugar plantation to the fetid streets of Georgian London--a remarkable literary debut with echoes of Alias Grace, The Underground Railroad, and The Paying Guests.

All of London is abuzz with the scandalous case of Frannie Langton, accused of the brutal double murder of her employers, renowned scientist George Benham and his eccentric French wife, Marguerite. Crowds pack the courtroom, eagerly following every twist, while the newspapers print lurid theories about the killings and the mysterious woman being held in the Old Bailey.

The testimonies against Frannie are damning. She is a seductress, a witch, a master manipulator, a whore...

Bought online as a birthday present.

Happy belated birthday! This looks like a good read. I browsed your wishlist and picked this, thinking I would have a read before sending it to you. But I was so behind on my reading. I don't want to delay your gift anymore, as it is already past your birthday and I haven't even started the book. So I will keep my copy to read and I am ordering you this one. Happy reading!

Received! Thank you so much
