'You must cross my palm with silver first, my pretty miss.' London, 1860s. The capital's high society ladies like nothing more than to while away an evening at a private supper party, drinking sweet wine, sharing confidences - and having their fortunes read. But palm-reading is a perilous business: the lines of the left hand can unlock secrets and reveal futures best kept hidden. When fortune-teller Miss Rose Lee is called to entertain Lady Quayle and her guests at Portland Place, she sees in the palm of shy, cautious Emily a future she is forced to keep to herself. 'A quiet life, my dear' is what she tells the girl. But she spies two little crosses that spell something quite different - fearful, violent death. As Rose's predictions start coming true, her own fortunes become embroiled in the suspect fates of others and the future suddenly seems a dark and dangerous place. With a plucky heroine and a rollicking story, Sara Stockbridge's second novel is a cauldron of subterfuge and mysticism.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"This briskly enjoyable novel of gypsy fortune-telling and high-society crimes in 1860s London has all the intrigue of its neo-Victorian rivals... With her salty cast of vagabonds and villains, Stockbridge stirs the pot with glee" * Independent *
"A good 'petticoat drama' read for fans of Sarah Waters" * We Love this Book *
"A vividly gripping mystery story that dances through the unexpected dangers of 1860s London" * Easy Living *
"Stockbridge has talent... Full of double dealing and repressed female sexuality, Cross My Palm takes us from the drawing rooms of Cavendish Square to the thieves and prostitutes of Haymarket - and finally to the gypsy encampment on Dulwich Common" * Evening Standard *
"This is a witty, and mysterious second novel from multi-talented actress, model and author Stockbridge... Impressive" * Diva Magazine *
