Publisher's Summary

It is London 1915 and Great Britain is at war with Germany. Stylish lady detective Miss Isabel Hewitt's manservant Clarke is away in Flanders serving in the Royal Medical Corps. Isabel is anxious for his safety. 

On the Home Front she has become involved with the Women's Emergency Corps. Through this work she has met a tall, well-built young woman named Hattie Peach. Hattie is now her maid and driver. Isabel is coping with her new life and then someone murders two girls from the WEC. 

These take place in Shoreditch and there are fears that Jack the Ripper may be back. Isabel is asked to investigate and she embarks on a journey which becomes both emotional and very dangerous indeed.

Ripping Yarn

Linda Stephenson has created a wonderful world, giving us a peek into WWI Britain. The characters (including a flatulent pup!) are well formed and each have their own voice, and the book even touches on themes not often encountered in stories set in this time period. Wonderfully narrated by Julia Eve, Miss Hewitt's world is one to which I cannot wait to return.
