While known for her Regency romances, Edghill shifted genre with Speak Daggers to Her (LJ 4/1/94) and introduced Bast (a.k.a. Karen Hightower), a practicing witch and amateur sleuth. In her second adventure, Bast "discovers" Mary, Queen of Scots, and the possibility that Mary practiced witchcraft. Bast even meets the current pretender to the Scottish throne, then unwittingly hides a stolen antique spellbook attributed to Mary. Because she is suspicious of other such thefts, Bast looks for connections to the murder of an occult bookstore owner. Edghill portrays this New York subculture with humor and panache and provides a unique, if sometimes cynical, perspective. Recommended.
