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