When nineteenth-century attorney Sarah Woolson defied convention by opening her own San Francisco law firm, she found that clients—paying clients, that is—were wary of a woman managing their legal affairs. Just as her patience and her money are running out, Sarah attends a séance at San Francisco’s Cliff House that turns out to be much more than “silly parlor tricks.” After a dramatic display, Russian clairvoyant Madame Olga Karpova and her guests discover that one of the people seated at the table has been brutally strangled.

Later, when two more of the guests are found slain, Sarah is pressed into defending the accused murderer. Working on her client’s case, she quickly finds herself at the center of a complicated murder plot involving ghosts, gypsies, and City Hall. It’s hardly proper behavior for a nineteenth-century woman, but Sarah wouldn’t have it any other way.

Quotes & Awards

  • “[An] entertaining and atmospheric 1880s San Francisco whodunit…Tallman throws in some unexpected twists, keeping the reader guessing to the end.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “Sarah Woolson is spunky as hell—law was a very male profession in the 1880s—and San Francisco is a great locale.”

    Contra Costa Times

  • “This is a fine historical series with a strong female sleuth who stands up for herself and plots that raise issues that remain relevant today.”


Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Diana Wood | 12/5/2013

    " I loved this book! I have never read a historical mystery book, but this one certainly hooked me. I can't wait to read the rest of her books. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Cherilee | 11/22/2013

    " I would actually give this 2 1/2 stars. It wasn't as good as the first one probably because the mystery was not as much of a mystery. Also, the characters became a little repetitive - which can happen in a series. But it was still a fun read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Alia | 11/11/2013

    " Very fun, I'm excited to read the rest of these. "
