Wiktoriańska Anglia, 1862 rok. Susan Trinder i Maud Lilly mają po osiemnaście lat, obie są sierotami, obie straciły matki w dramatycznych okolicznościach. Sue Trinder, córka złodziejki i morderczyni, mieszka w Londynie przy Lant Street, w domu oszusta i pasera, gdzie codziennie załatwia się brudne interesy. Panna Maud Lilly - wykształcona młoda dama - wychowuje się w Briar, posiadłości wuja, miłośnika i kolekcjonera nader specyficznego gatunku książek. Pewnego dnia losy obu dziewcząt się łączą. Niezwykła i zaskakująca historia, utrzymana w duchu powieści Dickensa i Wilkiego Collinsa.

3.5 I really, really enjoyed this book, until...
I want to give this story more than three and a half stars but hand on my heart, I just can't. The first 4/5 of the book were brilliant with twists and turns that I didn't see coming but then the whole thing turned into a cheesy romance. In some ways the ending was appropriate to the gothic romance ...

5.0 Fingersmith ★★★★★
It’s hard to review this historical thriller without spoilers, because much of the fun is in the twists and turns of the plot as the various characters and their machinations are revealed. It’s well-done, too. I wasn’t able to correctly guess any of them, at least until the very end. But this is not...

4.0 Fingersmith
To call Fingersmith a lesbian love story is a disservice on many levels. Never mind that the novel is full of titillation (pun intended): there is hot lesbian reasonably graphic passion; a disturbing lesbian gang rape scene; hate-fueled love rants; and plenty of murder. But this is far more than a...
