Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Once again, Gregory brings to bear her extraordinary ability to paint a period picture of London in all its grimness and grittiness. Hats off to the lady!—Daily Mail

The Body in the Thames offers an equally fascinating glimpse of a particular time and place, in this case Restoration London. Wonderfully researched, the novel is pungent with historical detail—Irish Times
