Product description


"[Rowland] creates a believable Charlotte whose intelligence, stubbornness, and wit recall Jane at every turn. Even more important, the mystery itself is particularly fine."-"Entertainment Weekly "
""Bedlam" invokes a Queen Victoria that's reminiscent of the petulant Japanese ruler in Rowland's other series (Sano Ichiro mysteries), and her minutely drawn scenes of street life in Victorian London are just as memorable as those from the Tokyo of 400-plus years ago." -- "Times-Picayune"
"This lighthearted romp is a veritable festival of the Penny Dreadful." -- "New Jersey Star-Ledger"
"This delightful and sophisticated mystery transports readers through an era of Victorian history, with Charlotte Brontd leading the way...A must read for historical fans." -"Romantic Times"
"A sure bet...[Charlotte is] spunky and adventurous and a die-hard romantic all the way. She's a heroine for our times."-"New Orleans Times-Picayune"
"Rowland simply refuses to let readers lift their eyes from the page." -"Minneapolis Star-Tribune"
"Sharply relevant, Rowland's inventive action-thriller delivers enough intrigue and romance to satisfy a wide array of readers." -- "Booklist"
"A wide variety of interesting scientific, political, and literary tidbits are crammed into this romantic mystery" -- "Library Journal"
"The audacity of building a mystery caper around this unlikely heroine is part of the novel's considerable charm. Elegant stylist Rowland's prose remains as pitch-perfect as in "Secret Adventures of Charlotte Bronte" (2008), in what should be another long-running series from the author of the Sano Ichiro mysteries." --"Kirkus"
"Laura Joh Rowland's apt recreation of Charlotte Bronte's style is still as accomplished and mesmerizing as the first time around" -- Bronte Blog
"Readers will fully believe the last Bronte sister's adventures. The story line is fast-paced, filled with action and feels plausible even with Charlotte turning into an amateur sleuth of sorts. As with the previous Charlotte Bronte's secret adventures (in Moscow), fans of Victorian thrillers will be thrilled reading about the heroine's bedlam escapades." -- "Midwest Book Review"
