Reviews

  • Rubenhold proves herself both a keen researcher and a writer who understands narrative tension...a compelling and ingenious book

    Independent
  • Scrupulously researched and cleverly structured... Among the scurrilous tales of 18th-century low life...this one is the most intriguing.

    Daily Telegraph
  • A good story...impeccable...

    Times
  • Rubenhold's pages practically reek with smelly, pox-ridden Georgian Soho. She shows, with a complete lack of po-faced sermonising, the dangers of prostitution as well as the possibilities it offered, and she creates a narrative from the interrelated fortunes of her three main characters that crackles with drama and tension.

    Guardian
  • A fascinating exposé of the seamy side of 18th century life (awarded five stars)

    Mail on Sunday
