Concerned for her father’s safety, Alice seeks explanations for the many unanswered questions about the avowed anarchist responsible for McKinley’s death. In her quest, Alice drags St. Clair from grim Bowery bars to the elegant parlors of New York’s ruling class, from the haunts of the Chinese secret societies to the magnificent new University Club. Meanwhile, St. Clair has to come to terms with his hard and violent past, as Alice struggles with her growing feelings for him.
Alice and the Assassin is unequivocally the most fun mystery I can remember reading.
It’s a character driven novel, my favorite kind, but it’s also written in first person from a man’s perspective, which threw me off a bit at times. I loved it, but sometimes I had to remind myself of who the character was and read a paragraph again. 🙂
I absolutely loved Alice. Her vivacious personality and knack for finding trouble are tremendously entertaining. It was especially interesting how she brought out the best in so many. She seemed to make them want to be the best version of them self… well, there were a few exceptions.
Thank you for writing an interesting book that’s a solid mystery and I can share with everyone. I so appreciate that it’s G rated & can’t wait to read the next book in this new series, The Body in the Ballroom!
