Death on the River Thames
By Deryn Lake
John Rawlings has returned to London from America, where revolutionary trouble was brewing.
Having made a substantial sum selling carbonated water, he buys a country house situated on the banks of the Thames in Chiswick.
One morning a small child falls into the river, and John, witnessing her rescue, hears her say she did not fall but was pushed.
Not long after, he is at the theatre with his daughter Rose when a woman is lowered by her ankles from the Slips. As he goes to her aid John Rawlings gets the feeling that some deadly mystery is about to unfold. Could the two incidents possibly be connected?
Join John Rawlings and his friends as they make their way through the streets of Georgian London, solving mysteries, sipping claret, and dancing at balls with the Bon Ton.
