Kirsty says: “I was hooked on this series by Christopher Edge from the first sentence. The writing really pulls you in – you can hear the carriages racing over the cobbles outside the theatre and the Victorian ladies rustling their skirts in the audience while they listen to the latest spell-binding tale from a master storyteller. I don’t think I looked up from the manuscript till the final full stop… Gripping indeed!”
