'No author is more skilled at making a good story seem brilliant' Sunday Express
When Julia Ross, a jobless and penniless girl, is sent to meet a prospective employer, she is oblivious to the trap that awaits her. As she rings the bell to 30 Henriques Square, the door opens on a London household ruled by a red-wigged old lady with murderous intentions.
Two days later, Julia awakes in a different house in different clothes and with a new identity. And it's down to lawyer-sleuth Arthur Crook to rescue the missing heroine and clear out the villainous nest.
'An excellent thriller' Time Magazine
