<h3>From an award-winning author, Fingersmith is an extraordinary, ingenious tale of fraud, insanity and secrets</h3>

London 1862. Sue Trinder, orphaned at birth, grows up among petty thieves – fingersmiths – under the rough but loving care of Mrs Sucksby and her ‘family’. But from the moment Sue draws breath, her fate is linked to that of another orphan growing up in a gloomy mansion not too many miles away.
