Piers Alexander

A masterclass in voice, character and description

JJ Marsh, Bookmuse

“This is an epic adventure, full of pungent period detail, a Dickensian cast of vibrant characters, plus a complex and brilliantly conceived plot which makes your head spin. 17th century London comes fully to life, with all its triumphs and inequalities, colour, texture and structure. One of those worlds you absorb so wholly, you itch to return. The language deserves a special mention. This is a beautifully written story, a masterclass in voice, character and description. So many lines stopped me in my tracks to just admire the craftsmanship of this prose.”
