Publisher's Summary

San Francisco, 1882: After enjoying an evening listening to the young Oscar Wilde, crusading young lawyer Sarah Woolson and her brother, Samuel, are making their way home when a gunshot sounds and a bullet pierces the fog, striking Samuel. Who could want to hurt Samuel? Was he even the intended target? Determined to find answers, Sarah discovers more murder and mayhem on Telegraph Hill.
Shirley Tallman delivers an exciting whodunit with a trailblazing heroine set in a time and place when a nice young woman was supposed to be found in the drawing room instead of the courtroom.

Critic Reviews

"Excellent...Tallman convincingly makes her lead a dogged and fearless sleuth." (Publishers Weekly)
"Tallman continues to surround her plucky, intelligent heroine with historical tidbits and a strong mystery." (Kirkus Reviews)
"Tallman’s fifth Victorian mystery featuring San Francisco attorney Sarah Woolson has the feisty young woman worrying about the solvency of her law practice…Tallman continues to provide an excellent historical series featuring a strong female who wants a career in law rather than life as a society matron." (Booklist)

Brilliant cozy mystery

If you could sum up Death on Telegraph Hill in three words, what would they be?

Cozy. Engaging. Fun.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Sarah is a wonderful heroine, and Robert (the big blustering Scotsman) makes a terrific foil for her antics.

Have you listened to any of Carrington MacDuffie’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Excellent, as always.
