Book giveaway: The House on Half Moon Street

 house on half moon street giveaway

When the body of a young woman is wheeled into the hospital where Leo Stanhope works, his life is thrown into chaos and the events that follow threaten to expose his lifelong secret. To celebrate the paperback release of Alex Reeve's historical thriller, The House on Half Moon Street, we have 10 copies of the book to give away.  

Avid chess player; assistant to a London coroner; in love with Maria; and hiding a very big secret...

Leo was born Charlotte, the daughter of a respectable reverend. Knowing he was meant to be a man – despite the evidence of his body – and unable to cope with living a lie any longer, he fled his family home at just 15 and has been living as a man ever since, his secret known to only a few trusted people.

When Maria is found dead, Leo is accused of her murder. Desperate to find her killer and under suspicion from all those around him, he stands to lose not just the woman he loves, but his freedom and, ultimately, his life.

The start of an enticing new historical series set in Victorian London, The House on Half Moon Street introduces Leo Stanhope, who must uncover a killer without risking his own future.

"An intriguing murder mystery and a complex portrait of a man isolated by his awareness of who he truly is" - The Sunday Times

"Wonderfully atmospheric, each page carries the whiff of sulphur and gaslight" - Red
