Overview

Book 1 in the award-winning Anna Kronberg Mystery series.

"...so well written it belongs aside Oliver Twist, Wuthering Heights and other classics."
"An intelligent and exciting story line with amazing characters."


Anna Kronberg lives in Victorian London's worst rookery, offering medical treatment to prostitutes, vagrants, and criminals. To her, plugging holes and mopping up blood is normal. Stitching the slashed face of a young prostitute is not. Witnesses refuse to talk. The police can't be bothered with yet another injured whore. But whispers are spreading about a man who pays well for a few harmless knife marks.

No one dares reveal the man's identity. Only Garret O'Hare - a thief Anna barely knows - reluctantly agrees to help her investigate the assault.
But when the injured girl disappears, a veil of silence descends upon the slum. And Anna learns that she is no longer the hunter, but the hunted.

Warning: medical procedures, poverty, and prostitution are depicted without apology.
