Everyone is welcome!
A Jacketing Concern is an historical novel set in London and on the Sussex coast during the Regency period. At first glance the title might give prospective readers the idea that the novel is about problems in the tailoring trade; however, there is a much more sinister
explanation. “A jacketing concern” is a phrase from the slang of the London underworld at the beginning of the 19th century. It means someone has taken someone else’s wealth and position by underhand means. I hope readers will be intrigued enough by that explanation and the odd juxtaposition of a young chimney sweep and geese on the front cover to buy the book.
