A terrifying villain. A young woman desperate for answers. Danger and intrigue in Victorian London.
In 1848, Tessie and Finn struggle each day and dream of life far away in the New World, but when Tessie is attacked by an underworld figure known only as the Angel of Bishopsgate, her fight for survival has only just begun.
Separated from her beloved Finn, and oblivious to why the Angel wants her dead, her only clue points home to Dublin, and a past she thought would never find her.
Battling her way from the treacherous Old Nichol slums, and navigating the sparkling upper-classes, how will Tessie survive this game of cat-and-mouse with the city's most notorious villain?
Loved the story!
The story was a little slow at the beginning but it quickly picked up momentum. It had exciting twists and turns making it hard to put down. Would highly recommend! Can’t wait for the sequel to come out.
I love this story of hard times during the 19th century. To be manipulated by a man who controls everything, everyone, a horrible divide between rich and poor. I cannot wait for more!
