Description

The second novel in Ann Granger's wonderfully atmospheric Victorian mystery series.

Lizzie Martin, lady's companion, has been sent from London to the New Forest to comfort a young woman whose baby has tragically died. A sad enough task, but things take an even darker turn when a rat-catcher is found murdered in the garden, and the young woman is discovered beside the body, crying and covered in blood. Not knowing where else to turn, Lizzie calls upon her friend Inspector Ben Ross from Scotland Yard to solve the horrific crime.

Review quote

'One of crime fiction's most engaging heroines' * Yorkshire Post * 'Ann Granger's skill with character together with her sprightly writing make the most of the story....she is on to another winner' * Birmingham Post * 'The reader can expect a treat. Lively, different and fun' * Yorkshire Post * 'The plot is neat and ingenious, the characters rounded and touchingly credible, and the writing of this darkly humorous but humane and generous novel fluent, supple and a pleasure to read' * Ham and High * Praise for Ann Granger's previous crime novels: 'Characterisation, as ever with Granger, is sharp and astringent' * The Times *
