Publisher's Summary

1814, London's Covent Garden entices rich and poor alike with a cocktail of gin, beer and sex. In the surrounding parishes a group of young men are found murdered, all of them wearing masks, all of them behind locked doors.

Constable Charles Horton's investigation into these violent crimes begins at Thorpe Lee House in Surrey, where accusations of witchcraft have swept the village.

What connects these broken London men, and a village awash with talk of burning witches?

    Any additional comments?

    after the english monster this ranks as my second fave. I was hooked at the way that the author made me feel as if the people in the book believed they were modern and up to date, which was powerful as it was meant to be about people 200 years ago.very real believable characters, just brilliant
