Summary "The lives of two young women collide in [a]...thriller that alternates between the twisting back alleyways of Dickensian London and the cloistered gloom of a Gothic mansion. Raised in a den of petty thieves, or 'fingersmiths,' plucky orphan Sue Trinder agrees to help a con man known as Gentleman defraud and betray wealthy heiress Maud Lilly. But Sue's plans are turned upside down when she falls in love with Maud. Then the women are separated -- each to her own hellish prison -- just as they realize the strength of their passion for each other..." -- Container.
