Book Two of ‘The Roxy Compendium’ and set 26 years prior to the events of ‘Hats off to Brandenburg’, ‘The Other Woman’ is an epic historical adventure that follows a young Abigail Hardwoode as she is yanked from her comfy London home and thrust into the very heart of Paris and the bloody Revolution.

The year is 1789...

Abigail Hardwoode is content – the London Social Scene offers everything a seventeen-year-old girl could want. She has little concern for other people’s problems, least of all those in France where great civil unrest threatens to erupt into bloody revolution… but while the oppressed masses rise up, a new insidious organisation emerges and it seems that Abigail’s parents are incriminated.
Only British secret agent Hilary Weaver believes the Hardwoodes to be innocent. Suddenly Abigail is pulled from her peaceful existence and thrust into the chaos of Revolutionary France on a mission with Hilary to clear the family name…

‘The Other Woman’ is a huge adventure story spanning the first year of the Revolution. From the Chateaux d’If in Marseille, to Paris, across the channel to London and back again to the madness of those dangerous days, ‘The Other Woman’ puts to the test a host of characters embroiled in a dark mystery while all around them falls into chaos.

The Other Woman is book two in the Roxy Compendium series.

The shear amount of world building, creating each time a great set of characters and knowing how to write an unpredictable and amazing story really proves that [Graham Thomas] is one of my favourite authors out there. TheBookPlank

About The Roxy Compendium

An epic saga charting the lives, loves and adventures of The Roxy Playhouse Irregulars – those libertine artists and dreamers who dwell within the Roxy Playhouse, a dilapidated theatre in Regency London.  They will travel the world, they will see such wonderful sights, they will partake in grand adventures and we will go with them, every step of the way.

This saga is planned to run to fourteen novels split into two phases of seven. Though the books all interlink and take place in the same universe, some of stories are stand-alone spin off adventures and some of them are part of a huge on-going story.

As Stephen King says of his Dark Tower saga, The Roxy Compendium is my Jupiter – a planet that dwarfs all others.

Thomas seamlessly knits together a fast-paced story and historical fact and you’re going to be expected to keep up with the pace – he’s not lost any of his talent for creating filmic action scenes with a high body count. The French Revolution was bloody – and Thomas doesn’t shirk his duty in telling it like it was. He evokes the atmosphere in Paris – particularly around the storming of the Bastille – with real skill and panache. BookBag
