Editorial Reviews


"Ms.Locke's book is the third in her Victorian San Francisco Mysteries (and she hastwo short stories in the series too), and she continues the strong charactersand interesting views of Victorian San Francisco. This reviewer was raisedacross the bay from the city, and finds the mix of mystery, San Franciscohistory and strong women characters very appealing." -Laura Strathman Hulka, StoryCircle Book Reviews
"This new mystery is, once again, cleverly created, with clues,red herrings, and the ending is perfectly done. I highly recommend the entireseries." -Rebecca Dahlke
"Writing characters that are engaging to the modern reader, buttrue to their time period is tricky. As someone who has read a lot of primarysource material (e.g. letters from various war fronts, period newspaperarticles, etc.) in addition to being an avid reader of historical fiction, Ifind Locke's handling of her characters simply amazing."-William Ockham
