The Last Confessions of Thomas Hawkins by Antonia Hodgson . Review .

First of all I loved these characters!!!!! The main character Thomas is a loveable rouge living in some of the rougher areas of London in the 1800's . Where he lives crime is everywhere, friends look after their own and it's hard to know who to trust. Thomas is no saint, he likes the ladies of the night even though he is in love with a woman called Kitty who he lives with sometimes when she is in better humour with him, he drinks , he fights. A loveable bad guy any mother would urge you to stay away from. He owes a few debts that he has to repay and they are not of the monetary kind. By trying to pay off his debt  it could see him hurt at the least or hung at worst. When trouble lands at his door he has no choice but to get involved , his instincts are put to work and he is a man on a mission! This was amazing! I felt like I was really in London during that time , the sights and smells , and the dismal criminal justice system . If you enjoy books based in London during this  time in history then you will really enjoy this, Thomas makes a great main character and his sidekicks like Sam and Kitty are a likeable pair.
