Mrs Henry’s brothel has its idiosyncrasies: house lunches on Sundays, shared cleaning duties, and Mrs Henry herself—a combination of mercenary efficiency and caring mentor for her girls. It’s home to Lizzie, Charlie and Dina, three women who have become close friends whilst soliciting on the streets of Victorian London.
When prostitutes start turning up murdered, the girls’ work becomes more dangerous than usual, and the police investigation into the murder is getting nowhere fast. Fearing for their lives and seeking justice for the murdered girls, Mrs Henry’s girls take it upon themselves to catch the killer before he strikes again.

Following an undergraduate degree in English Literature, E. M. Jones developed a passion for crime, the role of women and all things Victorian. It was whilst completing a MA in Victorian Studies that this growing interest in Victorian London developed into A House of Repute. Based on these studies, this mystery is set amongst the lives of Victorian London’s prostitutes.
A House of Repute was written alongside a career in education and being a mother to three small children. This is E. M. Jones’s first novel.
