When Joe’s eyes returned to the room, he was ready and opened his mouth to speak. ‘Once upon a time—-‘ The door opened. And begins the story of the dead girl who was later alive.

      With Once Upon a River’s characters still bright in my mind’s eye, I am eager to pick up her other books: The Thirteenth Tale: A Novel () and Bellman and Black: A Novel (). I longed to visit the Thames and walk its well-established banks, stare into its murky water, wander around its locks and weirs, and explore upstream from Oxford. An exquisitely crafted multi-layered mystery brimming with folklore, suspense and romance, as well as with the urgent scientific curiosity of the Darwinian age, Once Upon a River is as richly atmospheric as Setterfield's bestseller The Thirteenth Tale.
