Staff Reviews

Steeped in the mores of late 18th century London, Mr Hancock, an upstanding ship owner becomes the owner of a dead mermaid. How does he make money from this? Enter stage left some of the most engaging women characters to lounge about your reading. High class courtesans become involved in this hilarious but also poignant novel about the place in society all women hold.

“This book was a pure delight from beginning to end. High-class escorts, nouveau riche merchants, madams, back-stabbings, broken hearts, mended hearts, parties, an angry mob, pining, mermaids: what more could you ask from a historical novel taking place in the late 18th century? The characters are so well-rounded I found myself cringing for them in their embarrassment and cheering for them in their triumph. The writing is so atmospheric it feels absolutely authentic. I can’t remember the last time I enjoyed reading a book as much as I enjoyed reading this one. The only way to describe this book is as an absolute romp.”
