'An exquisite read...will keep you engaged from the first page to the last. This is historical fiction at its best.'

Jack the Ripper meets Pygmalion... very creepy
'A rich jewel of a story, full of colour, desire and danger. I was transfixed.'
Captured in every character and locale is Fiorato's artistic flourish: a true chiaroscurist, she renders her models not only with radiant colour but rich meaning
A thrilling tale of love, lust, and revenge
A captivating Gothic blend of mystery and romance
A great summer read, I would highly recommend it if you enjoy tense, romantic thrillers, and have an interest in the Victorian art world.
A beautifully-crafted novel..., by turns opulent and visceral. The encroaching sense of menace was perfectly paced, as was the slow reveal of the shocking truth underpinning the story. I adored it.
