Publisher's Summary

It's the summer of 1880, and once again the lovely and inquisitive businesswoman Annie Fuller is helping San Francisco lawyer and beau Nate Dawson with a troublesome case. Nate's client, a female typesetter accused of murdering her boss, refuses to help in her own defense. Complicating matters, Nate's sister, Laura, insists on getting involved in the potentially dangerous investigation, while Laura's friend, Seth Timmons, troubled Civil War veteran, finds himself a witness for the prosecution. Will Nate be able to win his first big case? Will Laura and Seth find some way of remaining friends? And finally, will Annie and Nate's upcoming nuptials be derailed by their attempts to track down a killer?

Old friends and new listeners alike will enjoy Deadly Proof, this fourth installment of the cozy Victorian San Francisco Mystery series that blends light romance, suspense, and a glimpse into the lives of late 19th-century women who worked.

Another winner!

I have to say that each of the books that I've listened to have left me on the edge of my seat. Leaving me wanting the next one Pilfered Promises to be on audible.

Fabulous series!

I thought that this book was fantastic as well as the whole series of the Victorian San Francisco mysteries! I am hoping that Mrs. Locke adds more to the series. I would like to continue hearing about Annie and Nate along with Nate sister, Laura and Seth who looks like he is most definitely Laura's love interest. One of the things that I enjoy about the series is it is packed full of historical detail so that the reader actually feels as if they are back in San Francisco during the Victorian era. I would recommend the book in the series to anyone who loves a good history oracle cozy mystery!

Great twists

Another enjoyable read/listen by M. Louisa Locke. The audio version by Alexandra Haag helped bring this story to life. A very good joint effort by two very talented artistes.
I especially liked all the twists and turns that kept me guessing and I will admit to being quite surprised in the end as to who the murderer really was.
In addition to this, the love and mutual respect building up between Anne and Nate was lovely to read about.
It seems that Nate's younger sister is getting up to a bit of mischief in this story which is quite refreshing.
This is the third stand-alone story in the series that I have read so far and I can quite happily recommend each one of them.

Kept you guessing

Any additional comments?

Interesting and thought-provoking. The author offered many different lines of thought and suspects, although there wasn't a lot of time offered before the final conclusion was reached. The book itself wasn't too short, but the time between the suggestion of the murder and the conclusion kind of was. It would have been pleasant to have had more time to savor the possibilities. But overall, it was a pleasant book, complete with a happy ending :-)

Good, but

This book was a little slower than the rest of the series, but still a good read
