    London, 1727 - and Tom Hawkins is about to fall from his heaven of card games, brothels, and coffeehouses to the hell of a debtors' prison. The Marshalsea is a savage world of its own, with simple rules: those with family or friends who can lend them a little money may survive in relative comfort. Those with none will starve in squalor and disease. And those who try to escape will suffer a gruesome fate at the hands of the gaol's rutheless governor and his cronies.

    One of the best audio books I've chosen recently

    A brilliant historical crime novel of Georgian London from the author of The Devil in the Marshalsea. Spring 1728. A young, well-dressed man is dragged through the streets of London to the gallows at Tyburn. The crowds jeer and curse as he passes, calling him a murderer. He tries to remain calm. His name is Tom Hawkins, and he is innocent. Somehow he has to prove it before the rope squeezes the life out of him.It is, of course, all his own fault.

    The new twisting mystery from CWA Historical Dagger 2014 winner Antonia Hodgson. Late spring, 1728, and Thomas Hawkins has left London for the wild beauty of Yorkshire - forced on a mission he can't refuse. John Aislabie, one of the wealthiest men in England, has been threatened with murder. Blackmailed into investigating, Tom must hunt down those responsible - or lose the woman he loves forever.

    My least favourite so far but still a decent read.

    Yes, I usually listen whilst driving so anything is better than nothing
