About the Author

Mariah Fredericks was born and raised in New York City, where she still lives with her family. She is the author of several YA novels. Death of an American Beauty is her third novel to feature ladies' maid Jane Prescott.

Reviews

Ms. Fredericks's tour of old New York - from a seedy Bowery dive to the gilded palace of a department store - is eye-opening, and her mystery well-spun. But what makes this book a stand-out is its affecting depictions of interactions that transcend race, creed, gender and generations. - Wall Street Journal

Buoyed by Fredericks' deft plotting and lucid prose, Jane handles each crisis with aplomb. A welcome addition to the lady's-maid-cozy corner. - Kirkus

Engrossing. Fredericks's portrait of the social disparities of early 20th century New York and of the appealing Jane make this a winner. - Publishers Weekly

Charming . . . This is well worth recommending to patrons who liked the other books in the series as well as to those who are in the market for an Upstairs, Downstairs-tinged mystery. - Booklist
