The Devil In The Marshallsea by Antonia Hodgson 

page 59 the-devil-in-the-marshalsea

London, 1727 – and Tom Hawkins is in trouble. The wayward son of a country parson, his taste for wine, women and cards has led him in irons to the notorious Marshallsea debtor’s prison.

The Marshallsea is a dark and dangerous place at the best of times. But when an inmate is brutally murdered, the prison is soon gripped by fear and suspicion. Worst of all, Tom is sharing a cell with the prime suspect.

Now he must risk everything to uncover the truth – or be the next to die.
