The seamy boisterousness of Georgian London’s underworld is the setting for Jake Arnott’s new novel The Fatal Tree, the condemned-cell confession of a notorious female criminal. His previous novels, notably The Long Firm, He Kills Coppers, and truecrime have explored the rich but violent life of 20th century crime and here he brings the 1720s alive in all their gin-soaked, bawdy glory. He talks with Janet Ellis, herself author of gruesome Georgian thriller The Butcher’s Hook about this endlessly fascinating period in London’s history.Buy tickets
