From an award-winning new star of historical fiction, Daughters of Night reveals the dangerous underbelly of Georgian London - giving a voice to the female victims history so often forgets, and the women who remembered them.
Praise for Blood & Sugar:
Laura Shepherd-Robinson has written a story that is not only a page-turner of a thriller but, to an extent unusual in historical novels, where you feel you really are listening to a voice from the eighteenth century. This is a world conveyed with convincing, terrible clarity’ C. J. Sansom
'A novel of astonishing skill' Financial Times
'A tightly plotted crime story with vivid details of Georgian England' Sunday Times
'Stunning . . . Blood & Sugar is a harrowing and brutal epic [that] shocks and thrills in equal measure' Express
'Enthralling' Daily Telegraph
'A searing, ingeniously constructed story' The Times
