East-Anglia author Bridget Walsh joins us upon the launch of The Innocents, another fantastically gritty Victorian crime novel from the author of The Tumbling Girl .

The Variety Palace Music Hall is in trouble, due in no small part to a gruesome spate of murders that unfolded around it a few months previously.

Between writing, managing the music hall and trying to dissuade her boss from installing a water tank in the building, Minnie Ward has her hands full. Her complicated relationship with detective Albert Easterbrook doesn’t even bear thinking about.

But when a new string of murders tears through London, Minnie and Albert are thrown together once more. Strangely, the crimes seem to link back to a tragedy that took place fourteen years ago, leaving 183 children dead.

Given that this incident touched the lives of so many, everyone is a suspect . . .
