An 18th century Covent Garden Prostitute is forced to solve a murder or swing from the gallows.
“A woman has three choices in life. She may marry. She may become a servant, or she may become a whore.”
It is 1769 and these are violent times. London’s Covent Garden has long been a centre of hedonistic pleasure with its whores and harridans, aristocrats and artisans, actors, drunks and thieves. Prostitute, Kitty Ives, takes a man to her bed and wakes to find him dead. Fearing the gallows, so begins Kitty's quest to uncover the identity of the murderer.
The Finish exposes the violent and sexual underbelly of the 18th century and challenges your preconceived ideas about historical fiction.
