I know, I'm 8 billion years behind as usual ... what did other people think of this? I enjoyed it a fair bit, I'm not big on the Victoriana thing, generally, and the 'men writing about/as whores' thing doesn't really do it for me, but I did enjoy it anyway. I liked that some things were just left open-ended.
I read it on holiday about 3 years ago so not sure I can remember enough to discuss in detail! I found it a real page turner. Wasn't something I'd normally have chosen - also not partciularly into victoriana/ whore thing - but bought it online after a recommendation and enjoyed it as did dh. The characters have really stayed with me but don't remember the plot very well.
