In this clever reimagining of Charles Dickensâ€™s life, he
and fiancĂ©e Kate Hogarth must solve the murder of a spinster
wearing a wedding gown . . .
London, June 1835: In the interest of being a good neighbor,
Charles checks in on Miss Haverstock, the elderly spinster
who resides in the flat above his. But as the young
journalist and his fiancĂ©e Kate ascend the stairs, they are
assaulted by the unmistakable smell of death. Upon entering
the womanâ€™s quarters, they find her decomposing corpse
propped up, adorned in a faded gown that looks like it could
have been her wedding dress, had she been married. A
murderer has set the stage. But to what purpose?
As news of an escaped convict from Coldbath Fields reaches
the couple, Charles reasonably expects the prisoner, Ned
Blood, may be responsible. But Kate suspects more personal
motives, given the time and effort in dressing the victim.
When a local blacksmith is found with cut manacles in his
shop and arrested, his distraught wife begs Charles and Kate
to help. At the inquest, they are surprised to meet Miss
Haverstockâ€™s cold and haughty foster daughter, shadowed by
her miserably besotted companion. Secrets shrouded by the
old womanâ€™s past may hold the answers to this web of
mystery. But Charles and Kate will have to risk their lives
to unveil the truth . . .
