Highly sought-after young cook Kat Holloway takes a position in a Mayfair mansion and soon finds herself immersed in the odd household of Lord Rankin. Kat is unbothered by the family’s eccentricities as long as they stay away from her kitchen, but trouble finds its way below stairs when her young Irish assistant is murdered. Intent on discovering who killed the helpless kitchen maid, Kat turns to the ever-capable Daniel McAdam, who is certainly much more than the charming delivery man he pretends to be. Along with the assistance of Lord Rankin’s unconventional sister-in-law and a mathematical genius, Kat and Daniel discover that the household murder was the barest tip of a plot rife with danger and treason—one that’s a threat to Queen Victoria herself.

“An excellent story combines with an excellent narration. Anne-Marie Piazza’s proper English accent is perfect for this murder mystery set in Victorian London..Piazza perfectly voices the various classes and accents of the characters who range from servants to aristocrats. Piazza deftly delivers the voice of Daniel McAdam…[and] effectively captures all the suspense and drama as Kat and Daniel risk their lives to save England from disaster. Listeners will be delighted with this series debut. Winner of the AudioFile Earphones Award.” AudioFile
“What a likable couple our sleuths Kat Holloway and Daniel McAdam make—after you’ve enjoyed Death below Stairs, make room on your reading calendar for Scandal above Stairs.” Criminal Element
“This mood piece by Ashley is not just a simple murder mystery. There is a sinister plot against the crown and the race is on to save the queen. The characters are a lively, diverse group, which bodes well for future Below Stairs mysteries, and the thoroughly entertaining cast will keep readers interested until the next escapade. This first installment is a well-crafted Victorian adventure.” RT Book Reviews (4½ stars, Top Pick!)
