Episode Summary

This week on Tea & Tattle, I’m joined by the author Laura Shepherd-Robinson, to discuss Laura’s debut novel, Blood & Sugar. Set in Deptford in 1781, Blood & Sugar is a murder mystery that explores the horrific history of Britain’s involvement in the slave trade. The protagonist, Captain Harry Corsham, is a war hero with an ambitious wife who is eager he pursue a career within politics.

Harry’s plans go awry, however, when he discovers the tortured corpse of his university friend, Tad Archer, in Deptford. A passionate abolitionist, Tad has been campaigning for the end of slavery, and his murder forces Harry to set himself against some of the country’s most powerful politicians in his efforts to uncover the truth behind Tad’s death and expose the terrible crimes against humanity committed by Britain’s slave traders.
