31 BOND STREET (Blue Door £12.99) by Ellen Ho­ran

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Books & Dvds -

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.
