Jane Prescott has perfected the art of serving as a
ladies’ maid in the upper-most echelons of 1910 New York
City society. Invisible until she’s needed, Jane has a
deft hand and a sharp, observant mind. Which means she
sees a lot more than the wealthy, glamorous people she
serves realize. When her mistress, Charlotte Benchley,
surprises the family by getting engaged to notorious
society playboy Norrie Newsome, Jane understands how the
engagement might have come to pass, and what it means for
both families. And when Norrie is suddenly and gruesomely
murdered, Jane is uniquely positioned to understand who
might have wanted him dead―from the family he was
supposed to marry into before he proposed to Charlotte,
to the survivors of a tragic accident in a mine owned by
the Newsome family, to the rising anarchists in
industrial revolution-era New York City who are sick of
the elite classes getting away with anything they want
simply because they were born wealthy.
Jane’s thoughtful, clear-eyed, and often humorous voice
leads us into the heart of a gripping, atmospheric murder
mystery in Mariah Fredericks’s debut adult novel.
