The Hourglass Factory

Frankie George is trying to make a living in the cutthroat world of Edwardian journalism. Sent by her editor to interview famous suffragette Ebony Diamond, Frankie is at first disappointed to be pigeon-holed for writing about women’s issues. However later, when Ebony disappears after two attempts on her life, Frankie’s curiosity is piqued enough to be led down into an underworld of suffragettes, hidden clubs and secrets, to a villain with chilling intentions… ‘Rollicking whodunit adventure…Terrific’ Ian Rankin. Themes: women in early 20th century, protest, self-expression through clothing
