This is a murder mystery set in the seedy theatres and backstreets of London in 1880. The atmosphere and the sense of time are well described, and the characters rounded and with interesting backstories. Despite these strengths, I can't say I hugely enjoyed this, perhaps because of some of the seediness and degradation involved which left a nasty taste in the mouth. Some aspects of the plot seemed a bit implausible as well. That said, I liked the central character enough to read the sequel, in which she seems set to rise in the world in which she lives. ( )

1880, in the Limehouse area of London dancing girls go missing. Lady Ginger who rules the roost is not happy. She uses our heroine Kitty Peck as bait to draw out the kidnappers putting Kitty in danger.

What I liked about this book was the narrative by Kitty. I liked the way she prattled on in her own way as she tells the reader her story. This is the first book in the series and can see that Kitty has a lot more to offer.

What I didn't enjoy was the fact that the story was a little bit long winded. As much as I enjoyed following Kitty around at times I felt not a lot happened and the story was just plodding along. I did towards the end start to get fed up and was glad when all was revealed.

Some of the descriptions of the Limehouse were intersting but I just didn't quite get that sense of place. If the narrative didn't keep reminding the reader where the story was set it could have been anywhere.

I don't think for me there is enough in this book to seek out anymore in the series. It's a shame as the story started out with a lot of potential but I felt it lost its way. ( )

I got the book thinking it was by the Kate Griffin who wrote the Matthew Swift series. It isn't. So it was a disappointment. The book tells a fast moving tale, but while it is well written, it doesn't shine with the brilliance of the other Kate Griffin (Charlotte Webb) who is a wordsmith. Fans of cozies should stay away from it, as it has a dark theme. ( )

This is Griffin’s debut novel and I think it is possible to tell; while the characters are very well drawn, and the mystery is unusual and exciting without being too fanciful, this isn’t as polished as it could be, and less literary than you might expect from Faber. However, it’s bursting with life and full of thrills as Kitty strives to uncover who’s behind the music hall murders. I’m pleased to see the next instalment of her adventures should be arriving soon.
