In this clever reimagining of Charles Dickens’ early life as a journalist, the latest novel from Heather Redmond’s acclaimed mystery series finds young Charles Dickens suspecting a miser of pushing his partner out a window, but his fiancée Kate Hogarth takes a more charitable view of the old man’s innocence.

This is the third book in Redmond’s A Dickens of a Crime historical mystery series, a complement to A Tale of Two Murders and Grave Expectations.  Readers will find these mysteries historically accurate and chock full of easter eggs in an homage to Dickens’ life and future books.

No bah humbug here! A clever and enjoyable read. Order this gorgeous hardcover early for yourself and friends in time for the holiday season.
