Overview
Traveling secretary Hattie Davish is taking her singular talents to Washington, D.C., to help Sir Arthur Windom-Greene research his next book. But in the winding halls of the nation s capital, searching for the truth can sometimes lead to murder . . .
Hattie is in her element, digging through dusty basements, attics, and abandoned buildings, not to be denied until she fishes out that elusive fact. But her delightful explorations are dampened when she witnesses a carriage crash into a carp pond beneath the shadow of the Washington Monument. Alarmingly, one of the passengers flees the scene, leaving the other to drown. The incident only heightens tensions brought on by the much publicized arrival of Coxey s Army, thousands of unemployed men converging on the capital for the first ever organized march on Washington. When one of the marchers is found murdered in the ensuing chaos, Hattie begins to suspect a sinister conspiracy is at hand. As she expands her investigations into the motives of murder and closes in on the trail of a killer, she is surprised and distraught to learn that her research will lead her straight to the highest levels of government . . .

Loan-Wilsey’s fifth Hattie Davish mystery (after 2015’s A Deceptive Homecoming) takes the reader on a fascinating journey into America’s past. In March of 1894, private secretary Hattie Davish accompanies her employer, Sir Arthur Windom-Green, an American-history scholar, on a research trip to Washington, D.C. They arrive at the same time that thousands of unemployed workers known as Coxey’s Army march on the U.S. Capitol to present their grievances. After Jasper Neely, one of the marchers, is fatally stabbed in the neck during a confrontation with the police, Hattie discovers that Neely sought to blackmail some powerful Washington politicos, one of whom may be Sir Arthur’s friend. The plot unravels at the end with a couple of implausible coincidences, but Hattie is an endearing, stalwart heroine, and Loan-Wilsey skillfully evokes time and place. Those who like their mysteries mixed with history and a little romance will be pleased. Agent: John Talbot, Talbot Fortune Agency. (Oct.)
