A time bursting with discoveries of exotic plants and growing trade with the East - when a young woman, adrift and alone, will find herself the connection between both.

Carey Prior was raised in India, the daughter of a horticulturalist hired by the East India Company. He discovered seeds for tea, for roses - and for powerful herbs sold as drugs. When Carey marries the dynamic Nash Prior, London businessman, she thinks she leaves this world behind. But suddenly Nash is violently taken from her - and in his wake, she begins to uncover his secrets. Her journey of discovery takes her underground among secret clubs and societies, gaming houses and brothels, intoxicating plants and company deals - each of which will play a part in Careys understanding of her husband, his death and her own new purpose.

Dramatic, dark, full of fascinating insights into London and British Indian society, The Hidden Hand will hold you in its irresistible grip.
