Editorial Reviews

Review

"An impressively well written and consistently compelling read from beginning to end, Radha Vatsal's "A Front Page Affair" is the first book in what is justifiably expected to be an outstanding series featuring rising journalism star Kitty Weeks.
" - Midwest Book Review

"A delightfully spunky heroine defies convention as an investigative reporter in this engaging historical mystery. The small factual details of New York life are gems" - Rhys Bowen, New York Times bestselling author of the Molly Murphy and Royal Spyness mysteries

"This first in a planned series is a nice combination of mystery and thriller seasoned by historical facts and a look at women's lives before woman's liberation. " - Kirkus

"This lively and well-researched debut introduces a charming historical series and an appealing fish-out-of-water sleuth who seeks independence and a career in an age when most women are bent on getting married, particularly to titled Englishmen. Devotees of Rhys Bowen's mysteries will enjoy making the acquaintance of Miss Weeks.
" - Library Journal-STARRED

"[A] spirited debut...Vatsal deftly intertwines the tumult of the era, from emerging women's rights to spreading international conflict, into this rich historical." - Publishers Weekly

"The fascinating historical details add flair to this thoroughly engaging mystery starring an intelligent amateur sleuth reminiscent of Rhys Bowen's Molly Murphy. Vatsal's debut will leave readers eager for Kitty's next adventure." - Booklist

"This is a well-thought-out mystery novel, combining historical fiction and feminism with a determined and brave protagonist ready to chart new mysteries and new paths for herself." - Mystery Scene

"Radha Vatsal's debut, A FRONT PAGE AFFAIR, doesn't read like a first novel. First novels aren't supposed to be this self-assured, or detailed, or full of three-dimensional characters (both real and fictional) who vividly bring the 1910s to life." - The Thrill Begins

"Radha Vatsal ramps up the action in Kitty's simple, rule-driven world to show how American women are beginning to shape their country in previously unheard-of ways. Delightful, intriguing, and relevant historical fiction!" - Historical Novel Society

"Reading a well-crafted historical mystery is always a pleasure and with A FRONT PAGE AFFAIR, Radha Vatsal delivers precisely that. " - The Big Thrill

About the Author

Radha Vatsal grew up in Mumbai, India, and came to the United States to attend boarding school when she was sixteen. She has stayed here ever since. Her fascination with the 1910s began when she studied women filmmakers and action-film heroines of silent cinema at Duke University, where she earned her Ph.D. from the English Department. A Front Page Affair is her first novel. Radha lives with her husband and two daughters in New York City.
