"The flavor of a good mystery . . . Hodgson (editor-in-chief of Little, Brown U.K.) even introduces a clever narrative strategy . . . Chock full of intrigue, heroism, wickedness . . . and even some redemption. A fun historical read." --Kirkus Reviews, starred review

"Hodgson has provided another pell-mell romp through the top and bottom of English society, as seen through the eyes of a gentleman who is both a rogue and a naΓ―f. Those who relish their historical action fast and vivid will enjoy the second installment of Hawkins's misadventures." --Library Journal, starred review

"As good as her stellar debut . . . Hodgson maintains pitch-perfect suspense, craftily constructs a fairly clued whodunit, and convincingly evokes the period. This second novel by the editor in chief at Little, Brown U.K. solidifies her position as a major talent in the genre." --Publishers Weekly, starred review

"With a dramatic storytelling style that includes many unsavory characters, Hodgson keeps readers on tenterhooks as Hawkins nears the gallows. Suspenseful and filled with witty dialogue, this series is reminiscent of James McGee's atmospheric Matthew Hawkwood novels and has the descriptive appeal of Sara Stockbridge's Victorian mystery Grace Hammer." --Booklist
