About the book:

Could a series of murders in London in 1889 be related to unsolved murders in Austin, Texas, 1884? Queen Victoria wants to know and asks her granddaughter—who left the queen’s good graces by going off to America to become a Pinkerton agent—to quietly look for any connection. The catch is the queen doesn’t want her to do it alone. Alice Anne must find her former Pinkerton agent partner—now an attorney in Austin—and enlist him in the hunt. As the pair get closer to finding their suspect, their lives become endangered, but they refuse to be intimidated. Can this case be solved?

 

My review:

I enjoyed this story following the Pinkerton agents as they tried to solve the cases of the Midnight Assassin and Jack the Ripper. I liked that it wasn’t gory or too violent even though it was about a murderer. I did like the bit about royalty.

 

My rating:  4-Stars-300x57
