Although I have often seen her books on shelves and in the windows of bookshops, this is the first Sarah Waters book that I’ve ever read.

Fingersmith is a tale of betrayal, fraud, secrets and lies, set in Victorian London. It’s richly atmospheric with enough twists and turns to keep the reader engaged until the very end.
I will be reading more of Waters’ books from now on.
