From the author of the bestselling Slammerkin, comes a gripping historical novel about three famous Londoners - an artist, an actress and an aristocrat - based on the true story of a love tringle that scandalised late eighteenth-century London.
"Pulsates with the vibrancy of London in an era that couldn't be more extravagant. While Mad King George was teetering on the throne, the grotesquely privileged carried on a gaudy social whirl of enthusiastic bed-hopping and decadent costume parties with the revolution in France hanging over them like a guillotine."
