Advanced Praise for Death and the Sisters

"Death and the Sisters is a terrific blend of gritty history with a mystery that will keep readers turning pages. Impeccably researched and imaginative, Redmond's first Mary Shelley Mystery immerses readers in the drama of young Mary Godwin and her family, as well as her budding romance with Percy Shelley, as they work together to solve a wonderfully bookish murder. I thoroughly enjoyed this series kick-off and can't wait for the next story!" --Susanna Craig, author of The Lady Knows Best on Death and the Sisters

"Death and the Sisers is a rip-roaring murder mystery with twists and turns that introduces teenaged Mary Godwin, not yet the author of the immortal work Frankenstein, as an amateur detective. Redmond's foray in the world of rational atheists in early 19th century London is a mesmerizing, forceful delight." --Eilis Flynn, author of The Riddle of Rym on Death and the Sisters

"Crafted with vivid historical detail, an artfully twisted plot, and engaging characters, Death and the Sisters is an excellent start to what I hope will be a long-running series." --Dianne Freeman, author of the award-winning Countess of Harleigh Mysteries on Death and the Sisters

"It might be the way London comes to life in all of its dark and gritty complexities, or the dynamics between Mary and her step-sister, Jane, as they set out to find the killer of the man who they discover dead in the bookshop. Everyone is a suspect--even Percy Shelley who has caught the eye of the women in the household. Propulsive and immersive, Heather Redmond is at the top of her game until the intense and satisfying end." --Mary Keliikoa, author of Hidden Pieces on Death and the Sisters

"An intrepid cast of characters, a stunningly atmospheric 19th-century London, and a riveting murder... Highly recommend." --Melissa Bourbon, bestselling author on Death and the Sisters
