A Spartan Murder
When Cassie Pengear is summoned to Oxford as a suspect in a murder, she assumes it's by one of the Scotland Yard Inspectors who don't appreciate her occasional help. She's surprised to learn it's from her friend Inspector Burrows and even more startling, he actually begins to give her information on the case of a murdered Oxford don. Startling until she realizes his two best suspects are committing a crime Inspector Burrows would rather overlook simply by being together. Now she's keeping suspects' secrets while investigating blackmail and murder. In a Victorian England that almost existed, a steampunk London where tinkerers and clockwork devices exist alongside handsome cabs and corsets, murder is still solved by traditional observation and intuition. This is the London where American typist Cassandra Pengear finds herself stumbling over corpses and helping Scotland Yard detectives solve murders (although they inexplicably prefer to call it interfering). Follow her adventures in the Cassie Pengear Mystery series, beginning with The Killing at the Carnival.
