Publisher's Summary

March, 1896. Motherhood and work as a private detective don't easily go hand-in-hand, but Vanessa is determined to give it a try, and she has been kept busy by a string of requests asking for her help in solving troubling cases. It is not often, though, that her investigations involve violent death. When three sombre professors knock on her door, Vanessa knows they have come in search of her help. But when they explain the circumstances surrounding their colleague's murder, she begins to doubt whether her modest capabilities will be enough to solve the mystery.

Annoying narrator

The reader spoils this slightly disconnected historical mystery, by making all kinds of noises or swallowing. Maybe just poorly edited, but the book in plot and substance also had a similar feeling. It started out slowly and did progress toward the 3/4 mark. Female protagonist with children was a nice thought, but I would give this one a miss and try Anne Perry for something along the same lines but much better written.
