Sarah Waters is one of the best storytellers alive today - Matt Thorne, INDEPENDENT ON SUNDAY

Fingersmith is the third slice of engrossing lesbian Victoriana from Sarah Waters. Although lighter and more melodramatic in tone than its predecessor Affinity, this hypnotic suspense novel is awash with all manner of gloomy Dickensian leitmotifs: pickpoc - Travis Elborough, AMAZON.CO.UK REVIEW
