really liked it

Laura Purcell's last book - The Silent Companions - was a terrifically creepy gothic chiller.

The Corset is a different animal. I didn't find it creepy at all. Rather it's a disturbing story of madness, exploitation and suffering with a suggestion of the supernatural.

The dual narration works well, but unfortunately none of the twists and reveals came as surprises to me, which probably detracted from the impact of the final act.

Overall it was entertaining and I look forward to reading what Purcell writes next.
