Brave, resourceful, adventurous Fremont (née Caroline) Jones is a woman ahead of her time. Hungry for independence, she's traded in her conventional life in Boston for a career as a "type-writer" in turn-of-the-century San Francisco. But Fremont soon discovers that her clients aren't always what they appear to be, and that in doing her job she's transcribing her way into a wealth of mystery--and mortal danger....
Dashing lawyer Justin Cameron well-nigh sweeps Fremont Jones off her feet--and into a situation ripe with perilous intrigue. A client meets an untimely death that Fremant suspects is linked to the paper she typed for him, of which she can recall but one small fragment. And her attempts to disentangle reality and imagination in the gothic tales penned by Edgar Allan Partridge--whose demeanor is one of terror under the barest restraint--send her up the rocky California coast on a mission of discovery from which she may not return....
A riveting, atmospheric mix of intrigue and humor introduces a new investigator as cultivated as Sherlock Holmes and as spunky as Kinsey Millhone.
From the Paperback edition.
"Fans of Elizabeth Peters or Anne Perry should love Dianne Day's new turn-of-the-century female sleuth. Uncorseted and thoroughly liberated, Fremont Jones is the American cousin of Amelia Peabody and Charlotte Pitt--opinionated, resourceful, imaginative, brave and thoroughly entertaining."
--Margaret Maron, author of The Bootlegger's Daughter and Shoot at Loans
"Dianne Day has created a turn-of-the-century feminist as ingenious and timeless as a woman of the nineties. Fremont Jones is one dynamite lady by one terrific writer."
--Sarah Shankman, author of He Was Her Man
