From Booklist:

Slight and overstuffed at the same time, this historical mystery still manages to be a page-turner. Jasmine Malloy is 30, already widowed, but employed by a London detective agency in 1885. She's sent to Devon to investigate the disappearance of Baron Renstone's daughter and finds much that is disturbing in the family. Renstone is a deeply unpleasant sort, in and out of his cups; no one is sorry when he is foully murdered. Maidservants sent away with child, the new theory of evolution, the dismal fate of younger sons, and intimations of incest are only some of the plot complications, but Peterson manages a deft hand in keeping it all in the air. English village and London city life are nicely, if sketchily, handled; and a possible romantic interest for Jasmine makes a pleasant appearance. GraceAnne DeCandido

From Library Journal:

In 1885, female private investigator Jasmine Malloy (employed by a London firm) is sent to an unkempt country manor house to look for a missing teenage daughter. Jasmine questions all and sundry, including the girl's beautiful best friend, her downtrodden mother, her pregnant-and-therefore-ousted maidservant, and her pigheaded, curmudgeonly father. Complications arise from the engagement of the family ward to the family heir and from the subsequent murder of the father. A well-thought-out historical by the author of ten British mysteries, including Shroud for a Scholar; fans of Anne Perry's novels and other Victorian mysteries will enjoy. For all collections.
