About the Author

Katharine McMahon is a historical novelist whose books include A Way Through the Woods and The Alchemist's Daughter. British actress and narrator Josephine Bailey has won ten AudioFile Earphones Awards and a prestigious Audie Award, and Publishers Weekly named her Best Female Narrator in 2002.

Reviews

Set in 1920s London, McMahon's suspenseful story weaves together three seemingly unrelated threads in the life of trailblazing female attorney Evelyn Gifford, as sordid secrets among the city's most influential and respected families come to light. Josephine Bailey does an especially masterful job contrasting the carefree North American speech patterns and boldness of a mysterious Canadian visitor named Meredith with the repressed manner of Evelyn and her relatives. Bailey also nicely captures the indignant determination of young mother Leah Marchant, one of Gifford's down-and-out clients. As the story progresses, keeping track of the characters -particularly the male figures involved in the climactic courtroom showdown-may require some effort, but attentive listeners should find the overall experience both engaging and entertaining. A Putnam hardcover (Reviews, Nov. 2). (Apr.) Copyright 2010 Reed Business Information.

"McMahon's historical novels are often complex but extremely rewarding in their depth and character development. Her latest is her best novel to date." ---Library Journal Starred Review
