About the Author
- Marilyn Stasio, The New York Times Book Review
“Welsh’s deeply feminist novel is an engaging, fast-paced tale full of twists and turns. The novel puts on full display the various struggles of women entering academia, as well as women’s class struggles. Readers who enjoy historical fiction that incorporates mystery and female empowerment will love this.”
“A top-class crime thriller, a riveting social documentary, and a fascinating historical novel. Brilliant writing. A total gem.”
- Criminal Element
“Sarah is a spunky but historically accurate heroine, bucking the most restrictive traditions in order to comment on them. The first book in what will, one hopes, be a long-running series, featuring a new kind of historical leading lady, Welsh’s debut is an inspiring feminist tale perfect for the modern age.”
- Library Journal (starred; Debut of the Month)
“With a strong plot and sharply drawn characters, the author effectively portrays the attitudes and prejudices of Victorians towards women and their role in society along with a dark tale of murder. With a nod to Conan Doyle, and a satisfying and surprising conclusion, this is a readable and welcome addition to the genre.”
- Historical Novels Review
“Welsh makes clever use of the conventions of the genre while throwing in a twist informed by modern sensibilities. Damp, sooty, moralistic, and sinning Edinburgh is convincingly evoked. A gritty detective story as unflinching as its heroine, rich in well-researched period detail.”
- Kirkus Reviews
“Gripping. An exhilarating and atmospheric mystery set mostly in the gas-lit streets of Edinburgh. Welsh balances her protagonist's progressive inclinations with a self-awareness that enables her to play the roles that the era demands. The result is a layered, provocative and riveting mystery about Victorian dynamics and womanhood.”
- Shelf Awareness
“An excellent debut novel that is both entertaining and educational.”
- Mystery Scene
“A moving, nuanced first novel. Superior characterizations and convincing period detail.”
- Publishers Weekly
“This gripping, thought-provoking historical mystery will open teens’ eyes to the reality of life for independent women in the 1800s. For readers interested in women’s history or those who enjoy delving into Victorian society.”
