31 BOND STREET (Blue Door £12.99) by Ellen Horan
Romance, politics, greed and sexual intrigue. What more could you want from a historical thriller based on the true story of a New York celebrity dentist found stabbed and nearly decapitated in his Manhattan home in 1857. The riddle of who killed Dr Harvey Burdell grips America in the years leading up to the Civil War. The prime suspect is his housekeeper and lover, Emma Cunningham, and this evocative story reveals the scandals and corruption rife in American society at the time.
