Avon Street: A Tale of Murder in Victorian Bath

Avon Street: A Tale of Murder in Victorian Bath

Paul Emanuelli

This novel is set in Victorial Bath, but unlike most novels set in this city in this era, the characters range from grubby criminals to those in society, with the working class and the professional class in between. It's a really enjoyable read: well researched, well plotted and tantalising to the last page as what could happen is anybody's guess.

This is a light read from a first-time novelist that will appeal to readers of typical modern romance, although it steps outside the “typical” chick-lit storyline (in a positive way). The story is set in Bath and has many references to the city.
