Set against the backdrop of 1920s colonial India are the mysteries that follow little Stephen Crow when he is smuggled from England, by his corrupt uncle Jeremy, into a wealthy Indian household. Why is he hastily renamed Tom Spicer? And why are his origins, an heir to a vast fortune, hidden from them?
A widow in the native Indian compound, lovingly adopts Tom as her own. But the dangers that forced Tom’s removal from England soon catch up with him here, far from his birthplace.
Tom Spicer: A Still Small Voice is an expansive novel which takes the Oliver Twist narrative and reverses it – skilfully transporting readers to a bygone era.
