The Burial Plot is the brilliant new novel by the author of The Doll Factory. Set in Victorian London, it is a tense and gripping cat and mouse thriller. It is 1839, the cemeteries are full and there is money to be made from death. Bonnie and Crawford lead a life of trickery, surviving on ill-gotten coin and nefarious schemes. But one hot evening, their luck runs out. A man lies in a pool of blood at Bonnie’s feet and now she needs to disappear. This remarkable novel is full of twists and turns, has a wonderfully pungent period atmosphere and it is set to be a bestseller. It is a masterclass in Gothic storytelling.
