Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Narrator Cassandra Campbell delivers a story of sexual violence in 1890s Brooklyn that resonates with events of today…Using a strong sense of timing and well-done expression, Campbell captivates listeners, keeping them riveted to the fast-moving story…A powerful listening experience. Winner of the AudioFile Earphones Award.” AudioFile
“Levy masterfully incorporates true stories into the plot, supplying historical tidbits that will send readers to the internet to learn more.” Booklist
“A shocking #MeToo story set in an era when women had no chance of being believed…Famous figures of the period spice up a fine mystery that takes on a problem still making headlines.” Kirkus Reviews
“Levy does a better job of making a female gumshoe in this era plausible than many of her contemporaries prowling the same turf. Readers will be curious to see what turn Mary’s career takes next.” Publishers Weekly
