Whew! What a ride! Allow me a moment to loosen my bodice that I may think more clearly... there we are! This is a gothic, neo-Victorian, deeply Dickensian mystery with gut-punching twists. Sue was raised in a house of thieves in the Burroughs of London where she is scooped up into a plot to swindle a naive heiress out of her fortune. Would that it were so simple. This book has it all: Drama, deceit, history, mad houses, eccentric villains, lesbian romance, all the good stuff.
