From the bestselling author of A Woman of Substance, a page-turning epic Victorian historical family saga.

London 1889: Victorian London is a place of wealth, privilege and poverty, a city of extremes. For James Falconer, who grew up as a barrow boy on a London market, it is a city of opportunity.

Working his way up Henry Malvern’s trading company in Piccadilly, James faces fraud and betrayal. A fierce rivalry develops with Henry’s daughter and heir Alexis – but their animosity masks a powerful attraction.

Embarking on a love affair with the daughter of Russian émigrés, James’s life begins to transform. But as treachery and danger threaten, a secret comes to light that will change his life forever. James must decide where his future lies – with Henry Malvern or following his own dream…

Gripping, dramatic and bringing the England of Queen Victoria and the British Empire vividly to life, In the Lion’s Den is a sweeping historical epic from one of our finest storytellers, creator of A Woman of Substance.
