Reading fun guaranteed! Prepare to step back through the curtain of time to the ninetee-twenties when Lady Margaret Thompson has a murder victim die in her arms. The victim was a Jewish immigrant who was well liked by his fellows and at first, this seemed to be a motiveless murder. Even though Inspector Thomas Monahan of the San Francisco police tells Lady Margaret to stay out of his investigation, she ignores him and begins her own investigation and finds herself deeply involved in more than one murder. She might be next. Twists and turns, red herrings, clues that aren't clues--all await the happily unwary reader in a tightly-plotted tale by a very talented author. You'll love the characters, even the well-drawn villains who dwell in the uncivilized part of the city. Highly recommended as a book you won't want to put down. You'll be looking for more work by Ms Susan Brassfield Cogan. Enjoy.
