Mrs Henry’s brothel has its idiosyncrasies: house lunches on Sundays, shared cleaning duties, and Mrs Henry herself—a combination of mercenary efficiency and caring mentor for her girls. It’s home to Lizzie, Charlie and Dina, three women who have become close friends whilst soliciting on the streets of Victorian London. When prostitutes start turning up murdered, the girls’ work becomes more dangerous than usual, and the police investigation into the murder is getting nowhere fast. Fearing for their lives and seeking justice for the murdered girls, Mrs Henry’s girls take it upon themselves to catch the killer before he strikes again.

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
My interest in Victorian London developed during my undergraduate study. When I moved to London I enjoyed exploring streets and squares that had stood there and been part of the city as it evolved. I have always enjoyed crime and mystery – from police procedurals to the work of Wilkie Collins and Charles Dickens. A House of Repute grew from these interest and a desire to tell a good story.
