Publisher's Summary

When the body of a young woman is found near the ruins of a haunted abbey, everyone assumes she died of fright. A postmortem examination tells a different story. Not only was Elizabeth Barrett poisoned, but the lethal dose of cyanide must have been administered by someone close to her - someone she trusted, who may have known her secret.  

As Captain Redmond and Constable Haze delve into the victim's seemingly ordinary life, they learn she wasn't the proper, biddable wife everyone believed her to be. With no clear motive for the murder and no obvious suspects, the trail soon grows cold. But the killer is closer than they imagined, waiting to strike with deadly force should they discover the truth.   

This is the second installment of the exciting Redmond and Haze mysteries, perfect for fans of Arthur Conan Doyle, Anne Perry, and C.S. Harris.

Great

Another great mystery from Irina Shapiro. I couldn’t put the book down. I wish the book had developed the relationships either the key characters a bit more.

Awesome! Keep them coming!

I'm invested in the characters and love these plot twists! I can't wait to find out if Ms. Hayes is pregnant and what has happened to Mr. Darrow!

A Well Told Story with Great Character!

Loved the development of Jason as an American doctor & his parental struggles with his ward Micah. And the combination of Daniel as investigator made you think of Sherlock's relationship with Watson on a more humble accent.

Story lost in long author lectures

This is the 2nd book in the series. I enjoyed the first one. This one, not so much. I am 1/2 way through and not sure I will finish. The mystery and murder are lost in long lectures on women's rights, individualism, child poverty, and other social issues that distract from the story. The story just seems like a convenient way for the author to lecture the reader. Not sure I will give the next book my credit. Also, narrator's American accent is confusing. Jason is supposedly from New York but his accent seems southern at times. And I'm not sure an 11-year-old American boy in 1866, who spent time with the Union Army in a prison camp would have such an audible Irish accent.

Another good story!

I think this was a very enjoyable listen, partly because the characters are really starting to develop. The pace is steady, continually moving forward, with other story lines included that help develop the relationships and set the backdrop for the murder mystery.

Exciting story/plot

I loved the storyline in the plot and really appreciated the author being creative with taking the story around and not leaving it to open for predictability. What I didn’t like very much was the narrator, she needs to pump it up a little bit, her reading is a bit flat.
Looking forward to the next book in the series.
