Description

In the cold Toronto winter of 1895, the unclad body of a servant girl is found frozen in a deserted laneway. Detective William Murdoch quickly finds out that more than one person connected with the girl’s simple life has something to hide.

Contributor Notes

Maureen Jennings’s Detective Murdoch series has been a hit from the start. Published to rave reviews, the first novel, Except the Dying, was shortlisted for both the Arthur Ellis and the Anthony first novel awards. The influential Drood Review picked Poor Tom Is Cold as one of its favourite mysteries of 2001. And Let Loose the Dogs was shortlisted for the 2004 Anthony Award for best historical mystery. Three novels have been adapted for television with two more in development.

Born in the U.K., Jennings now lives in Toronto.

Editorial Review

“A chiller . . . impressive. An engaging historical mystery.”
Houston Chronicle
“Remarkable.”
Philadelphia Inquirer
"A first novel enriched by the vividness of its period settings and animated by the lifelike characters caught up in its broad social sweep."
– New York Times
"Jennings creates more than a period mystery. She brings alive 1895 Toronto."
– Publishers Weekly
"Terrific . . . the best historical mystery of the year. . . . Murdoch is a fine creation. . . . We can't wait to meet him again."
