For fans of Maisie Dobbs, a riveting new Edwardian mystery series featuring detective heiress Ursula Marlow

Ursula Marlow, the star of this richly detailed, beautifully paced, deeply romantic mystery, is a strong female heroine with whom fans of Dorothy Sayers, Sarah Waters, Anne Perry, and Jacqueline Winspear's Maisie Dobbs series will instantly fall in love. An Oxford graduate active in the battle for women's suffrage, Ursula is not your typical Edwardian heiress. Her once-charmed life takes a frightening turn when a fellow suffragette and friend is accused of murder. As Ursula digs deeper to discover the truth and clear her friend's tarnished name, she is drawn into a mystery that raises troubling questions about her own father's connection to the murder victim.

About the Author:

Born in Canada and raised in England and Australia, Clare Langley-Hawthorne was a practicing attorney in Melbourne until emigrating to the United States in 1995. Once here, she obtained her MA and LLM and worked as an economist for the health care industry before beginning her career as a writer. She lives in the San Francisco bay area with her Australian husband, her twin sons, and her collie.

From Publishers Weekly:

Langley-Hawthorne's debut, billed as the first in a new Edwardian series, introduces an aspiring journalist and an Oxford-educated heiress, Ursula Marlow, who has a lot to learn about good detective work. Ursula's sheltered life begins to unravel after she receives a frantic late-night call from her friend Winifred Stanford-Jones, who's awakened to her lesbian lover's bloody corpse in her bed. Ursula summons Lord Oliver Wrotham, legal adviser to her industrialist father, but she bristles at the condescending, restrictive male power structure of Edwardian London and launches her own probe into the murder—with limited success. More deaths follow, including that of Ursula's father. Suspecting the crimes may be linked to a botanical expedition to South America, Ursula embarks for its jungles to confirm her theory. Whodunit fans may feel let down by the chance discovery of the culprit's identity, though romance readers should appreciate the conflict between the heroine's attraction to the dark, handsome Lord Wrotham and her sense of duty to marry the man her father intended for her.
