The new updated edition of David Olusoga’s vital book on black British history

"Groundbreaking" – Observer

The latest atmospheric mystery from the author of the Richard and the Judy Book Club choice, The House on Half Moon Street. 'Exceptional - you hear and smell and taste Victorian London' Sarah Hilary The headlines scream warnings about the 'Butcher of Berner Street!' and the journalist behind them - Leo Stanhope - is secretly thrilled to see the effect his words are having. Leo's previous work has largely been concentrated on more mundane issues but when an anonymous letter summons him to a club in East London, only for the owner of the club to be found murdered shortly afterwards, Leo sees a story worth pursuing. Not to mention an opportunity to make a name for himself. Yet the more Leo digs, the stranger the story becomes, taking him from the club to a nearby convent, and into the past of a very unusual woman. But he is not the only one hunting for a killer. And it seems Leo's newspaper reports may have put someone else in grave danger... Praise for the Leo Stanhope series 'Reeve has not only crafted a brilliant crime novel, but has created a character who has made me see the world with new eyes' i 'Exceptional - you hear and smell and taste Victorian London' Sarah Hilary 'A deeply atmospheric thriller with more twists and turns than the grubby streets of London, and a central character we really care about' Heat
