The fourth instalment in the fast-paced historical mystery series.

Even though Paradise was riddled with rot, I reckoned I could make it a cleaner place for the poor types who came with the dirty trades. I could make them all love me, I thought.

I was wrong about that. I've been wrong about so much.

When she took over her grandmother's criminal empire, Paradise, Kitty Peck believed she would be able to run it her own way. She didn't fully grasp the reach of her inheritance, nor how much danger it would put her in: her grandmother has left her violently entwined with the Barons of London. With a penchant for gruesome ritual, and already having robbed Kitty of so much that she held dear, these fiends will stop at nothing to gain power.

What Kitty needs to do now is to break the Barons' hold on her. She is determined to do away with the dark underbelly of Paradise and build her music halls into the jewels of the East End. But as she begins her final assault on the Barons, a new threat appears in the form of an eerily charismatic preacher on a crusade against 'wickedness and vice'. Can Kitty save Paradise from destruction, without losing any more of the people she loves?

Author bio:

Kate Griffin was born within the sound of Bow bells, making her a true-born cockney. She has worked as an assistant to an antiques dealer, a journalist for local newspapers and most recently for The Society for the Protection of Ancient Buildings.

Kitty Peck and the Music Hall Murders, Kate's first book, won the Stylist / Faber crime writing competition. Kate's maternal family lived in Victorian Limehouse. One of the inspirations for this series came from tales of life round the London docks told by her grandmother. Kate lives in St Albans.
