Publisher's Summary

How did an actress die twice?

London, 1883. Actress Lizzie Dixie drowned in the River Thames, so how was she murdered five years later in Highgate Cemetery?

Intrepid Fleet Street reporter Penny Green was a friend of Lizzie's, and Scotland Yard needs her help. Does Penny unwittingly hold clues to Lizzie's mysterious death? Penny must work with Inspector James Blakely to investigate the worlds of theater, showmen, and politicians in search of the truth. But who is following her? And who is sending her threatening letters?

Penny is about to discover that Lizzie's life was more complicated, and dangerous, than she could ever have imagined.

Better be abridged!

Way too long till almost the very end, repetitive, dragged and dragged, I kept fastforwarding. A bit too many not very believable coincidences. The narrator does not make a clear distinction between characters in dialogues, it was often v. confusing. However, the resolution was unexpected and satisfying!

Nice read

The ending had a twist that I didn't guess and that always makes me happy. I liked the book and will probably read more in the series but I didn't love it. But it has potential.

A good one for fans of Anne Perry

If you enjoy the Charlotte and Thomas Pitt novels of Anne Perry, you'll be very comfortable with this novel. While Penny and the inspector are not married, in fact, just meet in this novel, they work together well, bounce ideas off each other, and make their way thru a number of red herrings to get to the truth of the murder. The ending was satisfying, and the characters throughout the book were well developed and interesting personalities. As in Anne Perry's books, the historical manner of living provides a backdrop for the story.

Why don’t Audible label YA fiction as such

I know that there is some excellent fiction for young people and I enjoy reading it on occasion but I was expecting this to be an adult fiction. The appalling narration didn’t help. There was no life or energy in the reading and nothing to engage the reader.
