Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“A delightful and suspenseful page-turner that is both engaging and keeps readers guessing.” Historical Novels Review
“With delectably gruesome details, rapid-fire dialogue, an unpredictable plot, and well-developed characters, this top-notch third installment is sure to please fans of Carol McCleary’s Nellie Bly and Rhys Bowen’s Molly Murphy. Or, to put it another way, think Phryne Fisher meets Constance Kopp in Anne Perry’s London.” Booklist
