'Fans of Sarah Waters will immediately be attracted to this latest offering from Ann Featherstone . . . beautifully written, highly literate but terribly sad'
'Excellent . . . Ann Featherstone's skilful hand dances a jig of its own in this fine novel, set in the darker side of Victorial London'
'Measured, wonderfully memorable, bona fide without ever feeling painstakingly so, and a rollicking good time from end to end, The Newgate Jig is a delight'
'Drama both on and off stage that is blood red in tooth and claw.... a first rate crime novel that rises high above the normal standards of the genre'
