Review

"A chiller . . . impressive. An engaging historical mystery."
- Houston Chronicle

"Remarkable."
- Philadelphia Inquirer

"A first novel enriched by the vividness of its period settings and animated by the lifelike characters caught up in its broad social sweep."
- New York Times

"Jennings creates more than a period mystery. She brings alive 1895 Toronto."
- Publishers Weekly

"Terrific . . . the best historical mystery of the year. . . . Murdoch is a fine creation. . . . We can't wait to meet him again."
- Mystery Collector's BookLine

Product Description

Toronto, February 1895. When the body of a young woman is found naked and frozen in a quiet laneway, Acting Detective William Murdoch, driven by pity for the dead girl and the desire to secure his promotion, is determined to pursue every lead and reveal the truth. Though influential people bring pressure to bear on the police to solve the mystery quickly, when the body is eventually identified it soon becomes clear that many of those connected with the girl's life have secrets to hide. Murdoch must use every detective skill he possesses and his understanding of human nature to untangle the case before more lives are lost.
