Dolly Merishaw is a midwife and an abortionist in Victorian Toronto, and although she keeps quiet about her clients, her contempt and greed leaves them resentful and angry. It comes as no surprise to Detective William Murdoch when she is murdered, but when a young boy is found dead in Dolly's squalid kitchen a week later, Murdoch isn't sure if he's hunting one murderer or two.

Review:

Life in late 19th-century Toronto comes startlingly alive in Jennings's second gripping tale. --Publishers Weekly

There are touches of Anne Perry and Peter Lovesey in her clear-eyed look at the social ills of the period. --Denver Post

A stupendously stimulating historical mystery that will garner new readers for a rising star. --Feminist Mystery Reviews

About the Author:
