The Burial Plot with Elizabeth Macneal

Mr B‘s delighted to host bestselling novelist Elizabeth Macneal as she discusses her third upcoming novel, The Burial Plot, a tense and gripping cat-and-mouse thriller set in Victorian London.

Elizabeth is the author of two previous Sunday Times bestselling novels The Doll Factory (also adapted into a Paramount+ major TV series), and the more recent Circus of Wonders.

About the Book:

London, 1839. With the cemeteries full and money to be made in death, tricksters Crawford and Bonnie survive on wicked schemes and ill-gotten coin. But one blistering evening, their fortunes flip. A man lies in a pool of blood at Bonnie’s feet and now she needs to disappear.

Crawford secures her a position as lady’s maid in a grand house on the Thames. As Bonnie comes to understand the family – the eccentric Mr Moncrieff, obsessively drawing mausoleums for his dead wife, and their peculiar daughter Cissie, scribbling imaginary love letters to herself – she begins to question what secrets are lying behind the house’s paper-thin walls and whether her own presence here was planned from the beginning.

Because Crawford is watching, and perhaps he is plotting his greatest trick yet . . .

Propulsive, rich and properly gripping. Macneal is a masterful storyteller – I genuinely could not put this down. — Stacey Halls, author of The Familiars and Mrs England

A book to sink into and relish. Dark, clever, with a twist worthy of your attention. Macneal gets better and better. — Kiran Millwood Hargrave, bestselling author of The Mercies
