“The Mystery Woman”, by Amanda Quick
In this 2nd book of the Ladies of Lantern Street, Quick tells the story of Beatrice Lockwood. Beatrice became a paranormal consultant at the Academy of the Occult only to have her boss murdered during a kidnapping attempt.
Now several months later, Beatrice is an investigative agent for the Finch & Marsh Agency. She is hired by Joshua Gage to catch a blackmailer. Gage’s history as an spy for the Crown has given him a special skill for investigation but injuries has forced him to retire.
A simple case of blackmail turns into a plan to once again kidnap Beatrice. Can a paranormal investigator and a retired spy, who does not believe in the paranormal, stop the evil plans of a killer?
Quick once again presents a well written British historical with touches of the paranormal and unique characters.
