Sweet Songbird

A novel by

'Are you familiar, Matthew Daniels, with the saying that those who are born to hang will never drown?'
England 1863:
Three deaths by drowning catapult Kitty Daniels and her brother Matt from a safe if dull existence into a wider and far more perilous world in which they have nothing to protect or support them but their own wits and talents. Kitty has a strong and unusual singing voice; her brother Matt's skills are more dangerous. He is a born thief - and nothing his sister can do or say will change him. Within a year they find themselves in a thieves' kitchen in Whitechapel, where Matt's talents would seem to be the most promising. But for Kitty the Song and Supper Rooms of the East End, and then the Music Halls that are becoming all the rage offer unexpected opportunity: until her love for a flawed and ruthless professional criminal put her and those she loves in terrible danger and leads to heartbreak and finally to murder. It will also engender a remorseless hatred that will eventually lure her to the dangerous and starving streets of a Paris besieged by the Prussian Army in an apparently hopeless hunt for a lost child.
