Praise

Praise for Portrait of Peril:
“Rowland’s Victorian London is fascinating and her team of irregulars unmatched.”
—Kirkus Reviews

“Well-crafted…Rowland blends acute psychological observation and meticulous historical research to explore the conflicts faced by an independent woman in Victorian society.”
—Publishers Weekly

Praise for The Woman in the Veil:
“Strong in character and plot, Rowland’s fourth Victorian mystery consistently appeals.”
—Kirkus Reviews
 
“Clever…Readers will enjoy Rowland’s original approach and realistic characters.”

[The Woman in the Veil] should build interest in Rowland’s richly atmospheric Victorian mysteries.”
—Booklist
 
“Here’s hoping for more stories with these characters.”
—Red Carpet Crash

“Impressively elegant and well crafted…A compelling and compulsive page turner of a read from cover to cover.”
—Midwest Book Review

“An appealing trio of crime solvers…The author’s knowledge and understanding of the Victorian age are flawless as she brings this mystery to an exciting conclusion.”
—Historical Novels Review

“[A] memorable new series.”
—New York Journal of Books

“The author is masterful at weaving many moving parts of this story together…I would highly recommend it to anyone who loves historical mystery thrillers.”
—Seattle Book Review

Praise for The Hangman’s Secret:
“Rowland’s engaging team of sleuths and a colorful rogues’ gallery of suspects make her third Victorian mystery a genuine page-turner.”
—Kirkus Reviews

“[Rowland] hits her stride in her third mystery featuring photographer Sarah Bain.”
—Publisher’s Weekly

“With delectably gruesome details, rapid-fire dialogue, an unpredictable plot, and well-developed characters, this top-notch third installment is sure to please fans of Carol McCleary’s Nellie Bly and Rhys Bowen’s Molly Murphy. Or, to put it another way, think Phryne Fisher meets Constance Kopp in Anne Perry’s London.”

—Historical Novels Review

“The story holds water and reads well from beginning to end.”
