A mystery featuring the Inspector and Mrs. Jeffries–“the Miss Marple of Victorian mystery.” (Paperback Forum)It was a most peculiar murder. A man’s body was found in the canal–but the evidence showed that he had drowned in a bathtub. A theatre critic known for his savage reviews, the victim had had a full cast of enemies. While Inspector Witherspoon scoured the theatre, his housekeeper and unofficial sleuthing partner Mrs. Jeffries uncovered the critic’s secret past: a real-life drama more compelling than any stage play…Emily Brightwell is the author of numerous Mrs. Jeffries mysteries, including Mrs. Jeffries and the Merry Gentlemen, Mrs. Jeffries Sallies Forth, and Mrs. Jeffries Turns the Tide.
Emily Brightwell is the New York Times bestselling author of the Victorian Mysteries featuring Inspector Witherspoon and Mrs. Jeffries.
