From the bestselling author of the phenomenally successful The Kashmir Shawl London 1885 As a turbulent and change-filled century draws to a close, there has never been a better time to alter your fortune.
But for a beautiful young woman of limited means, Eliza's choices appear to lie between the stifling domesticity of marriage or a downwards spiral to the streets - no matter how determined she is to forge her own path.
One night at a run-down theatre, she meets the charismatic Devil Wix - showman, master of illusion, fickle friend.
Drawn into his circle, Eliza becomes the catalyst of change for his colleagues - a dwarf, an eccentric engineer, and an artist - as well as Devil himself. And as Eliza embarks on a dangerous adventure, she must decide which path to choose, and how far she should go when she holds all their lives in her hands.
