The House on Half Moon Street

Alex Reeve

Introducing Leo Stanhope: a Victorian transgender coroner's assistant who must uncover a killer without risking his own future When the body of a young woman is wheeled into the hospital where Leo Stanhope works, his life is thrown into chaos. Maria, the woman he loves, has been murdered and it is not long before the finger of suspicion is turned on him, threatening to expose his lifelong secret.


Set in the 19th century, this is a murder mystery with powerful sexual overtones. Leo is a transgender man who was born a vicar’s daughter. At 15, he runs away to live as a man. He falls for a beautiful prostitute, only to become the chief suspect in her murder. Tense, atmospheric, and utterly gripping.
