The Mermaid and Mrs Hancock by Imogen Hermes Gowar

It begins on an autumn night in 1785. Merchant Jonah Hancock waits anxiously for news of his ship, but a knocking at the door brings him instead a curio beyond his imagining: a sea goblin, a monster, a mermaid. As the whisper of his find spreads across London, Jonah finds himself swept into an ambitious, topsy-turvy world of collectors, voyeurs, brothels and courtesans and into the path of Angelica Neal, the most beautiful woman he has ever seen.

This is a stunning and sparkling debut from a truly outstanding author who is undoubtedly going to move from strength to strength.
