London, 1727 - and Tom Hawkins is about to fall from his heaven of card games, brothels and coffee-houses into a hell of a debtor's prison. The Marshalsea is a savage world of its own, with simple rules: those with family or friends who can lend them a little money may survive in relative comfort. Those with none will starve in squalor and disease. And those who try to escape will suffer a gruesome fate at the hands of the gaol's ruthless governor and his cronies. The trouble is, Tom Hawkins has never been good at following rules - even simple ones. And the recent grisly murder of a debtor, Captain Roberts, as brought further terror to the gaol.

A highly enjoyable book which combines murder (I didn't work out whodunnit) with history - descriptions of the horrific conditions in the Old Marshalsea prison. I note that this is the first in a series of books about Thomas Hawkins - I shall look out for those.
Thank you for passing this to me, ReetPetite.

Very interesting thriller read...! Tom is set up and put into debtors prison with the only escape being to discover the murderer of a previous prisoner. Large choice of suspects in a debtors prison..... but he finally discovered who did it..... with a twist in the end that nobody expected!!!
Good read!
