Lizzie Pook’s Maude Horton's Glorious Revenge is an undeniable glory of historic fiction. At times deliciously grisly, always addictively entertaining, and laced with gothic atmosphere, it’s a rollercoaster romp of a read that reels with revenge, murder and the courage of two extraordinary women. I defy fans of female-fronted adventure novels not to read this in one sublimely escapist sitting.

London, 1850, and Maude receives the devastating news that her sister Constance has died after leaving their family apothecary for a ship bound for the Arctic, disguised as a boy to overcome the constraints of her sex. According to the letter Maude receives, Constance’s death was “a tragic accident”, but Maud smells a fish and will stop at nothing to get to the truth.

After reading her sister’s ship journal, Maude is drawn deep into London’s grim underbelly, where she encounters all manner of unsavoury men who make their money via ghoulish means. Marvellously macabre in places, and supremely evocative, Maude Horton's Glorious Revenge undulates between murderous intrigue, crisp characterisation and audacious brutality and courage to conjure an intoxicating apothecary’s brew of a book.
