Dark, haunting, compelling... equal to DuMaurier's novels - this book held me in its grip. Loved it.
Liz Fenwick, author of The Cornish House
Macabre, transporting, thick with atmosphere and allusion
Morgan McCarthy, author of The Other Half Of Me
Darkly sparkling. Very much enjoyed my days in Leda's twilight world. Doubt I'll sleep all that well tonight...
Anna Mazzola, author of The Unseeing
A wonderfully creepy tale. Leda is a triumph
Vanessa Lafaye, author of Summertime
Leda Grey's world is utterly beguiling
Antonia Senior, THE TIMES
An obvious comparison is with early Sarah Waters. The glee with which Fox approaches her material is infectious. All Victorian life is here. Intriguing
Fox's tale of obsessive love is memorable and unusual
A richly textured, highly coloured and entirely pleasurable read
A fabulous foray into a shadowy Victorian world
Fox's vivid, sensual prose is - fittingly - as seductive as a siren's song, drawing you into a shadowy Victorian world of obsession and guilt... An intoxicating follow-up to 2011's acclaimed The Somnambulist. Recommended to fans of Sarah Waters
A richly evocative story, brimming with intrigue and suspense
M. L. Stedman, author of THE LIGHT BETWEEN OCEANS
I loved this book and recommend it to anyone looking for a delightfully immersive and imaginative spell in the past
Martine Bailey, author of AN APPETITE FOR VIOLETS
A deliciously eerie affair... A story of obsession, jealousy, mysterious deaths and theatrically supernatural goings-on as very strange truths are tantalisingly revealed
Shades of Sunset Boulevard in this atmospheric chiller
