Notorious Blasted Rascal

Colonel Charteris and the Servant-Girl’s Revenge

This is the true story of the infamous Colonel Francis Charteris, card-sharp, fraud, extortioner, and serial rapist, who believed that he could use his ill-gotten fortune to buy his way out of any trouble. For many years this was true – and then he met his match in a very determined girl – his own maidservant.

"I love writing about crime, especially Victorian crime. Before the launch of my fiction series set in Bayswater in the 1880s I researched and wrote true crime and historical biography.

It is that fascination for the nineteenth century and those contradictory Victorians that I now bring to my fiction writing. Frances Doughty’s adventures are only just beginning!"
