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.

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.

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.
