An engrossing suspense novel set in Victorian London―about stolen fortunes, romance, murder, and revenge.

Whitechapel, 1888. Grace Hammer and her children live comfortably in Bell Lane, their home a little oasis in the squalor of London’s East End. They make their living picking the pockets of wealthy strangers foolish enough to venture there. But Grace’s history is about to catch up with her. Out in the countryside Mr. Blunt rocks in his chair, vowing furious retribution. He has never forgotten his scarlet treasure, or the coquettish young woman who stole it from him.

Fast-paced, racy, and reminiscent of Charles Dickens’s Oliver Twist, Grace Hammer depicts nineteenth-century London amid corruption and a plague of poverty, peopled by orphans, harlots, and petty thieves. Sara Stockbridge introduces an unlikely heroine in Grace Hammer, a captivating young matriarch in a complicated web of intrigue, deceit, loyalties, and betrayal.

From the Back Cover:

“An enjoyable romp through nineteenth-century Whitechapel in the company of the beautiful Grace Hammer.”―Vogue

“Grace wakes, eyes wide. . . . Someone cries, ‘Thief!’ in the distance. . . . Out in the dark countryside, in his gloomy farmhouse, Mr. Blunt sits upright in his oily bed, jabbering and growling in the dark. It haunts him tonight in his sleep, as it does maybe once a year now―calling, as bright as it ever was!―leading him on, like the Pole Star twinkling through a veil of cloud, only to dissolve again, and he clenches his brutal fists, and blasts the sleeping birds from the trees. ‘Damn you, Hammer, damn you!’ Sometimes he dreams, with pleasure, of slicing her throat.”―from Grace Hammer
