Theft of Life

Published by: Headline Review

Robertson has written several sparkling novels set in the mid-Georgian era, but there is an extra depth in her new book as she tackles the subject of the slave trade and how much Georgian high society depended on its profits. Shocking but not didactic, the novel reminds us of a bleak part of our heritage while also providing two first-class and cleverly intertwined mystery plots.
