About this title


A finishing school matron's plans to use a visit by Empress Eugenie of France as a social stepping stone meets with disaster when theft and murder run rampant in the school and a jaded pupil must search the streets of Edinburgh to catch the culprit

From Publishers Weekly:

McGregor, an activist for gay rights in Edinburgh, builds her first novel on Empress Eugenie of France's trip to Scotland in 1860. Heading the list of fictional characters are a student, Christabel MacKenzie, 17, and her tutor, Eleanor Stewart, 18--lesbian lovers. Along with everyone else at her school, Christabel is caught up in plans for a theatrical tableau to be presented at a reception honoring the Empress. When a copy of the imperial coronet, lent for the occasion, disappears, detective James McLevy takes charge of the investigation--and of a much graver case. The diadem turns up near the body of Peggy, a maid from the school, who apparently was killed after a rendezvous with a married man. To prove Peggy wasn't a thief, Christabel and Eleanor work to solve the mysteries of the lost royal replica and the murder. Sundry "real" people crop up enroute in McGregor's fiction, and are identified in the author's notes (which also mention the Scottish Institution for Young Ladies 1834-1879, a model for the novel's school).
