The switching of babies, normally for monetary gain, is a frequently tried and tested historical novel scenario, but here, as all in sundry seem to be bearing illegitimate children, itâ€™s an interesting puzzle for the reader to try and second guess the manipulative forces behind all the various relationships. Iâ€™m not going to tell you, suffice to say that this romp through aristocratic skulduggery, London vice, heirs lost and found over three-quarters of a century and much else, is enormous fun.Comparison: Sarah Waters, Mary Wesley, Victoria Clayton.Similar this month: None but try David Maine.
