Death of an American Beauty is the third in Mariah Fredericks' compelling series, set in Gilded Age New York, featuring Jane Prescott.
Jane Prescott is taking a break from her duties as lady's maid for a week, and plans to begin it with attending the hottest and most scandalous show in town: The opening of an art exhibition, showcasing the cubists, that is shocking New York City.
1913 is also the 50th anniversary of Lincoln's Emancipation Proclamation speech, and the city's great and good are determined to celebrate in style. Dolly Rutherford, heiress to the glamorous Rutherford's department store empire, has gathered her coterie of society ladies to put on a play - with Jane's employer Louise Tyler in the starring role as Lincoln himself. Jane is torn between helping the ladies with their costumes and enjoying her holiday. But fate decides she will do neither, when a woman is found murdered outside Jane's childhood home - a refuge for women run by her uncle.
Deeply troubled as her uncle falls under suspicion and haunted by memories of a woman she once knew, Jane - with the help of old friends and new acquaintances, reporter Michael Behan and music hall pianist Leo Hirschfeld - is determined to discover who is who is making death into their own twisted art form.

A significant work
Splendid story, superb writing, magnificent narration. One of the best historical fiction I’ve read/heard in years
Another Great Book!
In my experience, it's rare for a series to maintain the magic through the third installment, but Mariah Fredericks does it! If possible, this book was even more engaging than the first two. I really, really hope that the fifth book gets picked up by the publisher and we can continue to hear Jane's stories!
I'm interested in the next book, it should be coming out soon. I was a little confused about Leo at the end, but I guess I'll find out soon. Very, very good narration.
