Description
A good hanging always draws a crowd in Victorian England. Not everyone has come to jeer, however; George Kevill's young son Barney is in the front row, and knows his father is innocent. There are others who know that George is innocent, too—and they have every reason to silence the boy. Barney finds sanctuary at the London Aquarium with his father's bohemian friends: Bob Chapman and his performing dogs Brutus and Nero; the exquisite doll-lady Princess Tiny, and her admirer, the giant Herr Swann. Together with Fortinbras Horatio Trimmer, aspiring novelist and author of popular plays, they will seek to uncover the dark secrets that lie at the heart of the Victorian Establishment.

" In the wake of Walking in Pimlico, Featherstone's oft-acclaimed contemporaries Sarah Waters and Michel Faber would have been well to watch out. As a rich and unflinching tapestry of a time lost to us, it truly excelled; as a cracking murder mystery yarn, it proved unputdownable. Featherstone's latest novel, The Newgate Jig, is more of the same, and ominous though that might sound, in this case, that's a fine thing indeed."—Speculative Scotsman
