Kept -A Victorian Mystery

Title: Kept - A Victorian Mystery
Author: D.J. Taylor
Vintage, 2007 (2006)

It's been a while since I enjoyed this well-crafted historical novel and for anyone who has a thing for mad women in attics, London slum and sly, sinister men, this is well worth a read. From a genre that has exploded in recent years, and quite often aims for the bodice-ripping side of things, this is a gem!
