Description

The #1 international bestseller and The New York Times Editor's Choice "As lush as the novels of Kate Morton and Diane Setterfield, as exciting as The Alienist and Iain Pears' An Instance of the Fingerpost, this exquisite literary thriller will intrigue book clubs and rivet fans of historical fiction." --A.J. Finn, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Woman in the Window "A lush, evocative Gothic." --The New York Times Book Review "This terrifically exciting novel will jolt, thrill, and bewitch readers." --Booklist, starred review Obsession is an art. In this "sharp, scary, gorgeously evocative tale of love, art, and obsession" (Paula Hawkins, bestselling author of The Girl on the Train), a beautiful young woman aspires to be an artist, while a man's dark obsession may destroy her world forever. Obsession is an art. In 1850s London, the Great Exhibition is being erected in Hyde Park and, among the crowd watching the dazzling spectacle, two people meet by happenstance. For Iris, an arrestingly attractive aspiring artist, it is a brief and forgettable moment. But for Silas, a curiosity collector enchanted by all things strange and beautiful, the meeting marks a new beginning. When Iris is asked to model for Pre-Raphaelite artist Louis Frost, she agrees on the condition that he will also teach her to paint. Suddenly, her world begins to expand beyond her wildest dreams--but she has no idea that evil is waiting in the shadows. Silas has only thought of one thing since that chance meeting, and his obsession is darkening by the day. "A lush, evocative Gothic" (The New York Times Book Review) that is "a perfect blend of froth and substance" (The Washington Post), The Doll Factory will haunt you long after you finish it and is perfect for fans of The Alienist, Drood, and Fingersmith.
