Antonia Hodgson on Richard & Judy

Conville & Walsh Literary Agency are delighted to announce that Antonia Hodgson’s debut novel, The Devil in the Marshalsea, has been chosen for WH Smith’s Autumn Richard and Judy Book Club list, as reported in the Bookseller.

image London, 1727 – Tom Hawkins is about to fall from his heaven of card games, brothels and coffee-houses to the hell of a debtors’ 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.

Tom finds the recent grisly murder of a debtor, Captain Roberts, has brought further terror to the gaol. And while the Captain’s beautiful widow cries for justice, the finger of suspicion points only one way: to the sly, enigmatic figure of Samuel Fleet.

Some call Fleet the devil, a man to avoid at all costs.

But Tom Hawkins is sharing his cell.

Soon, Tom’s choice is clear: get to the truth of the murder – or be the next to die.

If you’d like to read the book, you can buy a copy online or in a book shop.
