The Canary KeeperThey will see me hang for this. London, 1855. In the grey mist of the early morning a body is dumped on the shore of the Thames by a boatman in a metal canoe. The city is soon alive with talk of the foreign killer and his striking accomplice: a young woman dressed in widows weeds. Branna Birdie Quinns sleeplessness led her to the river that morning, but was it only thoughts of her drowned husband that kept her awake? She has always been wilful, haughty, different but is she a murderess? To clear her name, Birdie must retrace the dead mans footsteps to Orkney and the far north. A dangerous journey for a woman alone, but one she must make in order to save her neck from the hangmans noose.
