On the eve of the Victorian era, London has a new
sleuth . . .
In the winter of 1835, young Charles Dickens is a journalist
on the rise at the Evening Chronicle. Invited to
dinner at the estate of the newspaper's co-editor, Charles
is smitten with his boss's daughter, vivacious
nineteen-year-old Kate Hogarth. They are having the best of
times when a scream shatters the pleasant evening. Charles,
Kate, and her father rush to the neighbors' home, where Miss
Christiana Lugoson lies unconscious on the floor. By
morning, the poor young woman will be dead.
When Charles hears from a colleague of a very similar
mysterious death a year ago to the date, also a young woman,
he begins to suspect poisoning and feels compelled to
investigate. The lovely Kate offers to help—using her social
position to gain access to the members of the upper crust,
now suspects in a murder. If Charles can find justice for
the victims, it will be a far, far better thing than he has
ever done. But with a twist or two in this most peculiar
case, he and Kate may be in for the worst of times . . .
