Publisher's Summary

Felicity Carrol would rather be doing just about anything other than attending balls or seeking a husband. What she really wants to do is continue her work using the latest forensic methods and her photographic memory to help London police bring murderers to justice. So when her friend Scotland Yard Inspector Jackson Davies, weak from injury, discovers a murder in a wild mining town in Montana that echoes the terrible crimes in England, Felicity decides to go herself. 

In Placer, Montana, her first obstacle is handsome lawman Thomas Pike, who uses his intuition as much as his Colt to keep law and order in this unruly town. When the murderer strikes again, Felicity begins to suspect Davies is correct: Jack the Ripper has come to America. Felicity sets out to find the killer in a town chock full of secrets, shadows, and suspects, but as the body count rises, this intrepid sleuth faces her most dangerous adversary yet - and discovers that not all killers are as they seem.

Good Story but Slightly Too Gruesome for my Tastes

Good story, good characters, good reading by Lillian Rachel, but this is not your usual *cosy* mystery. It was a little too gory and gruesome for me.

The protagonist became unbearable

I liked the first- her struggles with her father, loss of a mentor, trying to work solving crimes when it wasn’t something done by women or by the upper class. She was arrogant and somehow magically good at everything. But in the sequel she was anti woman and rude while never actually being right. I couldn’t stand the character.

Felt like I was there with Felicity.

Patricia Marcantonio made me feel as though I was seeing through Felicity’s eyes. I have read and watched everything that has been written about Jack the Ripper. Patricia was factual, riveting and still held my interest with a twist.

Another Adventure for Fearless Felicity Carrol

This is the second Felicity Carrol mystery. In the "Murderous Menace" Felicity follows the trail of serial killer Jack the Ripper to a western mining town. As an English lady in the hardscrabble west Felicity does not fit in, but she finds freedom in a place that operates without the restrictions of British proprieties. She continues to push the boundaries of traditional female roles, even out west, and she endears herself to the townspeople thanks to her dogged pursuit of justice. This is another fun read. I hope there will be more to this series!

Brilliant

Very believable and thought provoking. Alternative historical route and yet quite likely in an obvious way, had the culture of the two sexes and their abilities been differently understood in those times.
