M. Louisa Locke is a retired professor of U.S. and Women’s History, who has embarked on a second career as an historical fiction writer. Her series of historical mysteries set in Victorian San Francisco are based on Locke's doctoral research on western working women, and Maids of Misfortune, Uneasy Spirits, and Bloody Lessons, feature Annie Fuller, a boardinghouse owner and clairvoyant, and Nate Dawson, a San Francisco lawyer, who together investigate murders and other crimes. Her short stories, Dandy Detects and The Miss Moffets Mend a Marriage, give secondary characters from this series a chance to get involved in their own minor mysteries. Locke is an active member in the Alliance of Independent Authors and a Director of the Historical Fiction Authors Cooperative. For more about M.

I like the history, the romance, the manners of this time period. I hope Ms. Locke keeps writing, I like what she does, and her characters are very interesting and likeable.Published 22 days ago by Irisandu2
A wonderful series. I'm sorry it's over - this was number 4. We'll hope for a tale of their future life.Published 1 month ago by JRHassett
Such fantastic well written historical fiction. The author is such a great storyteller and you feel like you are sitting in the parlor with Mrs.Fuller or Madam Sibyl. Read morePublished 1 month ago by Nola Stilsk
Set in 1880's San Francisco, this book is a real page turner with a complex plot and good characterizations. I really liked the quotes from historical sources about events in S.F. Read morePublished 2 months ago by Bookie
I am a big fan of M. Louisa Locke's books and short stories. I found this one a little slow and anti-climatic. I plan on reading more of her stories in the future.Published 2 months ago by Amazon Customer
