As Bridie fights to recover the stolen child she enters a world of fanatical anatomists, crooked surgeons and mercenary showmen. Anomalies are in fashion, curiosities are the thing, and fortunes are won and lost in the name of entertainment. The public love a spectacle and Christabel may well prove the most remarkable spectacle London has ever seen.

Jess Kidd will be instore discussing her own journey into the mysterious and eerie underbelly of Victorian London, answering your questions and signing copies of her new novel.
