'Thrilling, mysterious, twisted' Graham Norton'Delivers chills galore' GuardianThe 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.
