about

December 1918: post-War London is grieving, the city a wound whose dressing was taken off too soon. Violet Hill, the only female private detective in the city, is hired by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's business manager to uncover spiritual trickery he believes is deceiving his employer. Conan Doyle is desperate to contact his dead son. As Violet is lured into London's spiritualism scene, she discovers that there are powerful vested interests involved in maintaining certain delusions, and that even the most astute eye is not always beyond deception - or peril...

January 2018: Susanna is a Super-recogniser, one of an elite Met Police team of officers with extraordinary powers for facial recognition. After an apparently freak accident causes a head injury, her lifelong recognition ability suddenly disappears. At home on sick leave, she begins to dig into the past lives of the Victorian house she rents in London's Primrose Hill. As Susanna gets tangled in unexpected connections to a distant past, unawares to her a dangerous criminal, who stood to lose by a case she was working on before her injury, is at large. She no longer recognises him - but he knows who she is and where she lives...

Compelling stories across two eras weave into this page-turning, literary adventure of identity, deception, danger - and detection.
