THE BODY IN GRIFFITH PARK by Jennifer Kincheloe

Anna Blanc Mysteries #3
THe Body in Griffith Park
Los Angeles, 1908. Anna Blanc is a former so-so socialite, a flailing police matron, and a killer detective. Ex-heiress, Anna Blanc, is precariously employed by the Los Angeles Police Department, reforming delinquent children and minding lady jailbirds. What she really wants is to hunt criminals and be alone with Detective Joe Singer--both no-nos that could get her fired.
On a lover's tryst in Griffith Park, Anna and Joe discover the body of a young gambler. Anna can't resist. She's on the case. With a murder to solve and her police matron duties piling up, a young girl shows up at Central Station claiming to have been raped by a man from Mars. The men at the station scoff, but Anna is willing to investigate. Meanwhile, Anna begins getting strange floral arrangements from an unknown admirer. Following the petals leads her to another crime--one close to home. Suddenly pitted against Joe, Anna must examine her loyalties and solve the crimes, even if it means losing the man she loves.

Re: Jennifer Kincheloe | Author-Reader Match: THE BODY IN GRIFFITH PARK + Giveaway!

what a great ,interesting article
(Vickie Couturier 5:13am July 16)

I fit into all 9 categories that you listed in looking for a
reader. My favorite genre is reading historical mysteries.
Just love books in the turn of the century. I like to see
how things were done then and how things got invented. What
roles women were involved in. Probably not many then. Women
faced a lot of challenges. What a great concept of women in
law enforcement in the turn of the century. Add to that life
in old Los Angeles with humor thrown in. Is this the first
in a new series? I hope so. Love to read new books in my
favorite genre.
(Llnda Farabaugh 12:30pm July 16)

I think this book would be a great read, although I personally would hate to ever
find a body in a park!
(John Smith 9:19pm July 16)

This story sounds fun & I'm intrigued by the historical aspect.
