9780099498391: A Most Dangerous Woman: (Sarah Tanner 1)

It was said that she had the good manners of a respectable upper servant but was far too young to have been pensioned; that she spoke as if she had received and education, but knew the costers' slang as if she were born-and-bred to it; and that she not only had no husband - which was a commonplace on Leather Lane - but seemed never to have possessed one...'

When the mysterious Sarah Tanner opens her Dining and Coffee Rooms on the corner of Leather Lane and Liquorpond Street, her arrival amongst the poor market-traders causes something of a stir. Few doubt that she has 'a past'; no-one could have predicted how it will return to haunt her...

When an old friend is brutally murdered, Sarah Tanner is the only witness. Unable to turn to the police, she finds herself drawn back into the dark underworld of the Victorian metropolis... Relying on her wits, and trading on her past, Sarah Tanner risks her own life on a desperate quest for justice and vengeance.

Review:

"A writer who evokes the colour and danger of Victorian London with a master's touch ... moving with Jackson's mystified characters through the swirling fogs of our pre-electric capital city is an exhilarating experience" ( Daily Express)

"A feisty heroine, atmospheric settings, and an express-speed narrative full of twists and surprises. Victorian murder mysteries don't come better" (Frank Tallis)

"Lose yourself in Jackson's atmospheric writing as he introduces us to his intriguing Victorian heroine, Sarah Tanner. Jackson is a writer who not only knows his history but who knows how to tell a truly engrossing tale" (Gilda O'Neill)

From the Publisher:

'Jackson’s series is the best of current Victorian mysteries' - Sunday Telegraph
