Treachery on Tenth Street by Kate Belli

The wealthiest models are being brutally killed off but the Police seem to want to keep it under wraps. Rumours that Jack the Ripper has crossed the Atlantic and continuing in New York is enough to send its citizens into a frenzy and for them to hound the Police and the politicians. The models are also mistresses of various very highly placed people and silence on their deaths seems to be paramount. Not to Genevieve Stewart and her able partner Daniel McCaffrey who have worked in partnership before to solve crimes. Genevieve is a journalist by profession and is keen that investigative journalism should be her forte. 1888 was not a time when this was acceptable by society and she has fought enormous odds to reach this position. Her own parents are supportive, but her brothers are protective and abhor the danger she puts herself in. Daniel and Genevieve make a formidable team. They have access to the upper class which the Police cannot get to and so they make bigger strides in the investigation much to the chagrin of the Police force. Danger, class divides, upper class society of New York as stringent as it was in England if not more are all brought together in this very entertaining read.

  1. Danger and class divides? This sounds like a riveting one!

  2. I read the first book in this series and enjoyed it but didn't pick this one up. It sounds like it was a great read!
