"This is a skillfully crafted mystery with wonderful recurring characters who are the kind of people that live with the reader long after the book is finished" -- RP Dahlke, author of A Dangerous Harbor
M. Louisa Locke, a retired professor of U.S. and Women’s History, has embarked on a second career as an author of historical fiction. Based on Dr. Locke's doctoral research, her Victorian San Francisco mystery series includes Maids of Misfortune, Uneasy Spirits, and Bloody Lessons, top selling books in the historical and cozy mystery categories, and short stories, Dandy Detects, and The Misses Moffet Mend a Marriage, which feature characters from the novels. Locke is currently living in San Diego with her husband, a dog and two cats, and the third book in the series, Bloody Lessons.
