Description

Kate Adrleigh is everything the Victorian English gentlewoman is not--outspoken, free-thinking, American...and a writer of the frowned upon "penny-dreadfuls."

Soon after her arrival in Essex, England, a body is unearthed in a nearby archeological dig--and Kate has the chance to not only research her latest story...but to begin her first case with amateur detective Sir Charles Sheridan.

Our customer reviews

I was surprised when I started reading it, how good it was. I really liked the characters in the book. Kate as she is called is such a interesting woman. She isn't like your regular english ladies. First off she writes mystery novels which if became known would cause a scandel. Also she is interested in learning everything she can so she can put it in her books. She leaves the States to move to England to become a secretary for her aunt. One of the aunts is a nice lady and the other one isn't. Kate tries to ignore the horrible one and get on with her job. That isn't easy when this aunt causes upset and unhappiness for all the staff and Kate feels as if this has cast a gloom over the house. Kate is asked by the aunt who hired her to investigate who is the mystery man found dead at a escavation site discreetly. This is the type of mystery Kate enjoys. The other person in the book who is interested in the mystery man is a gentleman named Sir Charles Sheridan.He offers his help to the police who really aren't interested in solving this crime. He decides to investigate himself. They don't get off to the best start as Sir Charles isn't to keen on Kate's character. In the meanwhile two other people are murdered. But Kate is headstrong and sometime careless with regards to her life but she is determined to solve the crime.show more
