When the maidservant, who has a somewhat shady past, goes missing Frances finds herself involved in what turns out to be a murder enquiry. She is also finding her fame is spreading and she is being asked to undertake more work that she can possibly manage. Sarah, her companion is keen to try her hand at detection and soon proves to be an able and willing assistant.
This is a well written mystery novel set against the background of Victorian Bayswater. It really brings to life how women at that time were treated as possessions rather than individuals in their own right.
The suffragist and other political meetings are well done and I really got a flavour of them while I was reading this book. I liked the way Frances' spiky relationship with the police inspector is growing as well. I'm looking forward to reading more about Frances Doughty
