Author of the multi-million-copy bestseller Room 'Endlessly inventive . . . This will keep you up at night' Cosmopolitan San Francisco, 1876: a stifling heat wave and smallpox epidemic have engulfed the city. Deep in the streets of Chinatown live three former stars of the Parisian circus: Blanche, now an exotic dancer at the House of Mirrors, her lover Arthur and his companion Ernest. When an eccentric outsider joins their little circle, secrets unravel, changing everything - and leaving one of them dead. Inspired by a true unsolved crime, Frog Music is a dark and compelling story of intrigue and murder. 'This wild ride of a novel shakes, rattles and rolls its way along . . . for its irresistible readability, the only word is formidable' Irish Times 'Showstopping . . . a mind-bendingly original crime novel . . . a dazzling historical mystery' San Francisco Chronicle
