Meet Bridie Divine, the finest female detective in all of Victorian London. With her reputation in tatters after an unsuccessful job, Bridie has been handed her most puzzling case yet. Lord Berwick’s daughter, Christabel, has gone missing, possibly kidnapped. This is no ordinary missing person’s case, for Christabel is not supposed to exist, and she is no ordinary girl either. Bridie now finds herself drawn into a hidden world of crazed anatomists, crooked surgeons and greedy showmen. Everyone loves a curiosity and Christabel may just be the most sensational spectacle London has ever seen.
Costa Award-winning writer Jess Kidd has become a firm favourite here at Mr B’s, beginning with her debut Himself and followed by The Hoarder which immediately found a home on Emma’s favourite shelf in the shop! She is a storyteller like no other, her prose rich and innovative and her characters unique. Things in Jars is far from your average Victorian murder mystery – dark and macabre, but also told with Jess’s signature flair of laugh-out-loud humour. Jess Kidd is a curiosity all of her own, and surely one of the most exciting writers to come out of Ireland in the last decade. Join us this April as we explore the unforgettable story of Bridie Divine.
