An event with

Alex Hay in conversation with Anbara Salam

The Housekeepers

Thursday 13th June 2024 at 7:00pm

Daunt Books Summertown

Tickets £5.00


Join us to celebrate the paperback of Alex Hay’s brilliant Edwardian heist novel The Housekeepers, in conversation with Hazardous Spirits author Anbara Salam. This gripping novel of theft & revenge is like ‘Ocean’s 8 had an illegitimate baby with Fingersmith’ in the words of Erin Kelly.

Upstairs, Madam is planning the party of the season…All eyes are on the grandest house in Mayfair as the countdown to their lavish summer ball begins. Everything must be perfect. But with the chandeliers gleaming and the cellars stocked, loyal housekeeper Mrs King is suddenly dismissed.

Downstairs, the servants are plotting the heist of the century…As the clock strikes twelve on the night of the ball, Mrs King will return to strip the house of its riches – right under the nose of her former employer. And she knows just who to recruit to pull off the impossible: a bold alliance of women with nothing left to lose and every reason for revenge.

Tickets are £5 including a glass of wine or soft drink and can be booked online or in the shop.
