About the book

The next rip-roaring thriller from Antonia Hodgson, featuring Thomas Hawkins

Autumn, 1728. Life is good for Thomas Hawkins and Kitty Sparks. The Cocked Pistol, Kitty's wickedly disreputable bookshop, is a roaring success. Tom's celebrity as 'Half-Hanged Hawkins', the man who survived the gallows, is also proving useful.

Their happiness proves short-lived. When Tom is set upon by a street gang, he discovers there's a price on his head. Who on earth could want him dead - and why?

With the help of his ward, Sam Fleet, and Sam's underworld connections, Tom's investigation leads to a fine house in Jermyn Street, the elegant, enigmatic Lady Vanhook and an escaped slave by the name of Jeremiah Patience.

But for Tom and Kitty, discovering the truth is only the beginning of the nightmare.

A powerful, deeply immersive thriller, The Silver Collar is both a celebration of love and friendship, and a terrifying exploration of evil.

'In a tale that more than matches its predecessors for pace and atmosphere, Hawkins is forced into confrontation with a psychopathic killer . . . hugely enjoyable' - The Sunday Times
'One of the most impressive practitioners of the historical crime genre' - Independent

About the Author

Antonia Hodgson

Antonia Hodgson was born in Derby and studied English Language and Literature at the University of Leeds. She moved to London in 1994 where she began a career in publishing.

In 2014 Hodder published her debut, The Devil in the Marshalsea (spoiler alert: no vampires). Set in September 1727, it introduced Tom Hawkins - a lovable/infuriating young rake - who is forced to investigate a murder in the debtors’ prison in order to save his own life.

The book was shortlisted for several prestigious prizes including the Theakston’s Crime Novel of the Year, and was the winner of the CWA/Endeavour Historical Dagger. It was also chosen for the Waterstones Book Club and the Richard & Judy Book Club. It has been translated into several languages.

The series continued with the critically acclaimed The Last Confession of Thomas Hawkins and A Death At Fountains Abbey. In February 2017 she published her first short story - The Night Before the Hanging - as part of the Quick Reads crime anthology.

Antonia's new book, The Silver Collar, was published in August 2020.
