If you liked Sherlock Holmes I think you will really like this awesome book set in London in the 1800's about a woman convicted of helping a murderer . Now she is likely to be sentenced to death . When a man is urged to look into her case he quickly is not convinced she did it , all he needs for her to do is open up to him and talk but this woman does not trust easy and time is running out.
The setting of the story was wonderful and the build up to finding out why this woman( Sarah) just would not talk was nail biting if not more then a little frustrating . She is a strong female so you get the impression that what really must have happened had to be really bad.
The character of Edmund is a likeable and driven man , but he does it in a subtle way , he comes across as someone you could bare your soul to over a cup of tea and I liked that about him but Sarah was a hard nut to crack.
The story contained a few twists and turns keeping the reader on its toes to the very surprising end.
