A Tale of Two Murders
by Heather Redmond




Overview -
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 . . .

"Mr. Dickens himself would thoroughly enjoy this literary play on his early life and sleuthing abilities. Great fun to read "
--Catherine Lloyd, author of the Kurland St. Mary Mysteries

"An all-over twisty read and a Dickens of a good mystery "
--Julie Mulhern, USA Today bestselling author of The Country Club Murders

"Sharp, incisive, and delightfully twisty."
--Anna Lee Huber, bestselling author of the Lady Darby Mysteries
