Review:

"One of the first two fiction titles published by the History Press of Ireland. The book throws a different light on Irish history to most Irish fiction. . . . We see Dublin as the wealthy and sophisticated 'second city of the British empire' at the cutting edge of science. I look forward to forthcoming titles."  —Historical Novel Society
