    DescriptionAn action-packed tale of gowns, guys, guns-and the heroines who use them all Set in turn of the century London, "The Friday Society" follows the stories of three very intelligent and talented young women, all of whom are assistants to powerful men: Cora, lab assistant; Michiko, Japanese fight assistant; and Nellie, magician's assistant. The three young women's lives become inexorably intertwined after a chance meeting at a ball that ends with the discovery of a murdered mystery man. It's up to these three, in their own charming but bold way, to solve the murder-and the crimes they believe may be connected to it-without calling "too" much attention to themselves. Set in the past but with a modern irreverent flare, this Steampunk whodunit introduces three unforgettable and very ladylike-well, relatively ladylike-heroines poised for more dangerous adventures.

    Review quote
    "With odd inventions, beautifully described clothing, and skilled heroines, this alternate history offers much to enjoy." -- "Publishers Weekly" ."..an overall sense of frothy fun prevails, bolstered by winks at genre convention (much is made of the always-foggy London crime scenes) and by three kick-ass females with complementary strengths and distinctive personalities." -- "The Horn Book" ""The Friday Society" is an explosively entertaining concoction-a mystery and an adventure folded around complex themes, draped in rich historical settings, spiced with Steampunk cool and laced with sharp contemporary wit. It's a firecracker of a read, packed with a trio of feisty, fiery, fiercely intelligent heroines worth rooting for. More please!" -- Lesley Livingston, author of the internationally bestselling "Wondrous Strange" series
