An obvious comparison is with early Sarah Waters. The glee with which Fox approaches her material is infectious. All Victorian life is here. Intriguing
A richly textured, highly coloured and entirely pleasurable read
A richly evocative story, brimming with intrigue and suspense
Darkly sparkling. Very much enjoyed my days in Leda's twilight world. Doubt I'll sleep all that well tonight...
A wonderfully creepy tale. Leda is a triumph
A deliciously eerie affair... A story of obsession, jealousy, mysterious deaths and theatrically supernatural goings-on as very strange truths are tantalisingly revealed
Dark, haunting, compelling... equal to DuMaurier's novels - this book held me in its grip. Loved it.
A fabulous foray into a shadowy Victorian world
Macabre, transporting, thick with atmosphere and allusion
Fox's tale of obsessive love is memorable and unusual
I loved this book and recommend it to anyone looking for a delightfully immersive and imaginative spell in the past
Fox's vivid, sensual prose is - fittingly - as seductive as a siren's song, drawing you into a shadowy Victorian world of obsession and guilt... An intoxicating follow-up to 2011's acclaimed The Somnambulist. Recommended to fans of Sarah Waters
Leda Grey's world is utterly beguiling
Shades of Sunset Boulevard in this atmospheric chiller
