I'd tried reading Karina Cooper's other series but couldn't get into it. This one was a huge surprise and I read it in one sitting because I couldn't put it down. Set in an alternate London in the Victorian era, we are introduced to Cherry st. Croix who lives jointly in society and far beneath it. Cherry has a sordid past and an opium addiction that requires far more money then she receives from her guardian. So for the last five years Cherry has been collecting. She hunts down people who owe other people money but she has never hunted for a kill. She is hired to find out who is killing woman and what finds out will challenge her views on both science and her own past.
