Vixen is not as sensational as some of ME Braddon’s work but it is still a gripping page turner In Violet Tempest aka Vixen we have a spirited heroine something of a tomboy with a fiery temper and a vicious tongue for those who deserve it and she has a witty and withering way with her put downs Indeed it is the humour that makes this book stand out from the many other Braddon novels that I have read Some of the minor characters are comic creations of whom Jane Austen could be proud though Vixen herself is far too outspoken and headstrong to be at home in an Austen novel In the tradition of the sensation novel there is a villain in the piece but his behaviour is credible when compared with some of the genre’s evil rogues and there are no remarkable coincidences or far fetched plots that we fans of the genre sometimes have to swallow A Victorian classic that deserves wider recognition
