London Dust

(2003)
A novel by

 
 
A young woman, Natalie Meadows, jumps from Blackfriars Bridge, escaping from the horror she has just witnessed. But she is rescued and feels duty-bound to find out who murdered her best friend, the music hall star Nellie Warwick, and why. Natalie reinvents herself as Flora Thorne and finds a position as housemaid to the Reverend Wallace and his daughter. From the sanctuary of their home, she is able to investigate the circumstances of Nellie's murder. What she uncovers is a conspiracy of silence and corruption, and of unscrupulous men preying on women like herself and Nellie. Her attempts to unmask the killer and to bring him to justice exact a heavy price on Natalie. London Dust is a powerful evocation of the underbelly of Victorian London, full of flavour, completely convincing and utterly gripping.
