'Thrilling, mysterious, twisted' Graham Norton

'Utterly mesmerising . . . A triumph' New York Times Book Review
'Delivers chills galore' Guardian


The case of the extraordinary child . . .


London, 1863. A strange puzzle has reached Bridie Devine, the finest female detective of her age. To recover a stolen child, Bridie must enter the dark world of medical curiosities. The public love a spectacle and this child may well prove the most remarkable spectacle London has ever seen.

Things in Jars is a Victorian novel unlike any other, one that explores what it is to be human in inhumane times.
