Summary
Through her exquisite prose, sharp observation and deft plotting, Mariah Fredericks invites us into the heart of a changing New York in her remarkable debut adult novel.
New York City, 1910. Ladies' maid Jane Prescott has taken a position with the Benchley family, dismissed by the city's elite as 'new money.' Invisible until she's needed, Jane has a power they do not-- she understands the rules of high society. At a party for Charlotte Benchley's engagement to notorious playboy Norrie Newsome, the groom-to-be is found murdered. There are many with grudges to bear: from the family Norrie was supposed to marry into, to the survivors of a tragic accident in a mine owned by the Newsomes, to the rising anarchists who are sick of those born into wealth getting away with anything they want. And Jane may be the only person with the tools to solve the murder.
