A Gilded Age Mystery #3
New York heiress, Prudence MacKenzie is not the least bit conventional. She has been through too much for that. And she wants more. She wants to take the bar exam and become a litigator. For now she along with her partner, ex-Pinkerton agent Geoffrey Hunter have joined forces to form a partnership to investigate crimes and shady people.
It is the Gilded Age in New York and women were still property of their husbands. And when a new client shows up at their door begging them to find out exactly how her twin sister and newborn daughter died, they quickly find out this is going to be an investigation that may just get them all killed.
As they set out through the streets of Manhattan and less desirable locations, they learn enough to know that the second Mrs. may be in for the same fate as the first if they can’t stop him first.
I really love historical mysteries. The author has obviously researched her settings and characters well. I can’t wait to read the next installment of this series!
