Publisher Description

As the London winter draws in, will the truth be revealed and the innocent saved?

As the two worlds of Victorian London collide, the death of a prostitute at a society party makes for an unforgettable Christmas in Anne Perry's A Christmas Hope. Perfect for fans of C. J. Sansom and Ann Granger.

'Perry, as always, does an admirable job of pulling back the Christmas tree skirt and showing the darker underside tucked away behind the trappings of a Victorian holiday' - Washington Post

London, 1868. As the Christmas season begins, Claudine Burroughs feels little joy in its endless social calls and extravagant events. Working at a clinic for desperate women has opened her eyes to a different world.
Then her two worlds collide. A prostitute smuggled into a grandiose Christmas party is found brutally beaten. Poet Dai Tregarron stands accused. But Dai insists he was trying to protect her from the violence of three young men. Claudine believes him, but with society closing ranks against him, how can she prove his innocence without risking everything?
