"It's been four years since nineteenth-century Cambridge, England, schoolteacher Vanessa Duncan saved the man who was to become her fiance from the hangman's noose. Just when she is getting slightly bored with life, another mystery presents itself. Mrs. Bryce-Fortescue would like Vanessa to investigate her son-in-law's murder, as she is afraid her daughter, Sylvia, will be arrested for the crime. Vanessa leaps at the chance to go to Maidstone Hall and investigate, although her fiance is less enthusiastic . . . This epistolary mystery unfolds via Vanessa's chatty letters to her twin, Dora, Writing from Cambridge, Maidstone Hall, and Paris, Vanessa peppers the story with vivid details of Victorian life and times, comments on mathematical theory, and musings on the French Revolution."--Booklist"Catherine Shaw's work is something different.Inspired by Victorian literature and mathematics, she creates a powerfully driven story taking place in 1892 and not once losing the reader in historical anecdotes and/or explanations.Shaw's book is a rare treat."--Iloveamystery Newsletter
