Paris, 1866. When Baroness Sylvie Devereux receives a house-call from Charlotte Mothe, the sister she disowned, she fears her shady past as a spirit medium has caught up with her. But with their father ill and Charlotte unable to pay his bills, Sylvie is persuaded into one last con.

Their marks are the de Jacquinots: dysfunctional aristocrats who believe they are haunted by their great aunt, brutally murdered during the French Revolution.

Sylvie and Charlotte will need to deploy every trick to terrify the family out of their gold – until they experience inexplicable horrors themselves.

The sisters start to question if they really are at the mercy of a vengeful spirit. And what other deep, dark secrets threaten to come to light...?

Spitting Gold is a darkly atmospheric and propulsive historical debut that twists and turns, blending gothic mystery with a captivating sapphic romance

A tale of two sisters filled with spooky spirits, queer love, and high suspense ― HEAT

Set in nineteenth-century Paris, with the violence of the revolution in living memory, this is a wonderfully vivid and compelling gothic book. It is a real page turner, plunging you into the atmosphere of the time, and throwing up confusion as to who is deceiving who, after two sisters decide to go in for one last money-making hoax. Séances, sisterhood and dark secrets abound . . . ― ELODIE HARPER, author of THE WOLF DEN and THE TEMPLE OF FORTUNA

A compelling and atmospheric story of sisterhood and female agency, Spitting Gold is an evocative gothic tale where nothing is quite what it seems. ― Susan Stokes-Chapman, author of PANDORA

clever, atmospheric and sparkling Gothic debut with compelling characters and brilliant prose. Reminded me of Sarah Waters. ― Anna Mazzola, author of THE CLOCKWORK GIRL

Set in rain soaked 19th century Paris, Spitting Gold is tale of two sisters and a perfectly paced gothic heist. This world of spiritualist hucksters and scheming aristocrats is brilliantly evoked, and it's a story told with real heart. ― Tim Leach, author of THE LAST KING OF LYDIA
