In this transatlantic victorian tale, love and betrayal aren’t oceans apart.
“With each step, the figure grew larger; he was on the edge, facing out to sea, back turned to Perry’s approach. Perhaps he wouldn’t need the knife at all, a push might be all that it would take.”
In darkest Southampton the alleyways are rife with schemers and tricksters and Perry Scrimshaw considers himself the very best. The port is a dangerous, plague–ridden place with dockers threatening to riot. In the chaos, Perry attempts a swindle so ambitious it will set him up for life with the girl he loves. But Perry isn’t the only trickster in town. When his plans go violently wrong, he faces the struggle of his life…
Perry Scrimshaw’s Rite of Passage came out in paperback and Kindle in September 2015 and other ebook formats in December 2015.
