Once housemaid to the wealthy Studebaker family in South Bend, Indiana, Hilda Johansson is now married and living a well-to-do life with her new husband. But her Swedish family doesn't get along with his Irish relations. She's having trouble finding friends, since she no longer fits into her old world and isn't accepted in the new one. Just before Christmas, when the husband of her sole remaining friend is accused of theft, arson, and murder, Hilda has to find new ways of investigating a crime that seems to make no sense. In the hard economic times of 1904 with bank failures weekly, Hilda tries to aid the unemployed youth of South Bend by helping to form a Boys' Club modeled after Hull House in Chicago. And she also enlists some of them as "Baker Street Irregulars" in her mystery investigation, giving the reader a vivid sense of the city and street life of the times.

About the Author:

Jeanne M. Dams's life revolves around her love of the mystery and of the Victorian and Edwardian eras. She is the Agatha-winning and Macavity-nominated author of the popular Dorothy Martin series, as well as five previous books in the Hilda Johansson historical series. She lives in South Bend, Indiana, with her husband.

From Booklist:

The Hilda Johansson series hasn’t been running long enough to need a reboot (this is only the sixth installment), but the author shakes things up a little anyway, keeping the series fresh and offering readers a look at Hilda and her environment (South Bend, Indiana, in the early 1900s) from a new angle. The husband of one of Hilda’s closest friends is under suspicion of murder, and Hilda would dearly like to help out . . . but she is not sure she can. Hilda’s married now, mistress of her own house, no longer a maid—and, to her great consternation, cut off from her usual sources of information: shopkeepers, household staff, and so forth. Luckily, Hilda’s a resourceful woman, and she soon comes up with an ingenious solution to her investigative problem, one that will, not to give too much away, be of particular interest to Sherlock Holmes fans. The novel has a suspenseful story, but, as usual, it’s the characters and setting (rendered in precise but not obtrusive detail) that really capture our interest. --David Pitt
