Kate Griffin

Boasting one of the most unusual detectives ever to appear in historical fiction — a 17-year-old trapeze artist — this debut novel is a glorious romp through the seedy yet irresistible world of the East End music halls of 1880s London. Griffin has got Kitty’s voice spot on, and the plot doesn’t let up for a moment.
