The Silver Collar: Shortlisted for the HWA Gold Crown 2021

Antonia Hodgson

6 Reviews

Rated 0

Crime & mystery, Historical fiction

The fourth novel in Antonia Hodgson's award-winning series featuring Thomas Hawkins and Kitty Sparks is at once her most thrilling and the most darkly disturbing story yet.


'A triumph . . . leaves the reader hungry for more' Andrew Taylor

Autumn, 1728.

Life is good for Thomas Hawkins and Kitty Sparks in their home above the Cocked Pistol, Kitty's wickedly disreputable bookshop. But when Tom is attacked by a street gang, he discovers there's a price on his head.

Who wants him dead - and why?

For Tom and Kitty, the answer is only the beginning of the nightmare.

Powerful, deeply immersive, The Silver Collar is both a celebration of love and friendship, and a terrifying exploration of evil.

'One of the best crime series out there . . . a dark and addictive story of slavery and long-hidden secrets'

'The wonderful Thomas Hawkins crime novels . . . [Fans] are in for a treat - gripping' The Times

'Beautifully written and packed with atmosphere, wit, and historical details. I didn't want it to end' Daily Mirror

'Antonia Hodgson is right up in the first division of historical crime' Amanda Craig

  • I love Antonia Hodgson's slightly wicked sense of humour and it's put to good use here and her clear affection for Tom and Kitty and Sam, as well as her enthusiasm for the period, is infectious. This is such a strong series and I hope it goes on and on. - For Winter Nights

  • Antonia Hodgson weaves a fantastic tale of both fact and fiction and emerges with a thoroughly enjoyable romp of a story. - Nudge

  • A cracking murder mystery...The writing is clever, witty, eloquent and gripping, a real pleasure to can almost feel that you are living in 18th century London. Historical fiction fans will lap this up, as did I. - Breakaway Reviewers
