Publisher's Summary

Priceless artwork has gone missing from the home of a wealthy baronet, and his wife stands to take the blame.

When Kat's employer asks for help in clearing her friend's name, Kat trades her kitchen for the homes of Mayfair's wealthiest families. Soon antiquities are disappearing not only from the extravagant households of connoisseurs and collectors but also from the illustrious British Museum. As the thefts increase in frequency, Kat calls upon her friend Daniel McAdam, who has already set himself up in a pawnshop on the Strand as a seedy receiver of stolen goods. When a man is murdered in the shop, Kat must use all of her wits to see that the thieves are caught and justice is done.

Another excellent visit with Kat Holloway

I adore Jennifer Ashley's mysteries. In this outing, valuables are stolen from wealthy homes. Kat takes on a kitchen assistant who assists her, Daniel, and Lady Cynthia solve the thefts and murders.

Daniel reveals more about himself to Kat. And just who is his mysterious employer? Perhaps the next book will reveal more.

Lady Cynthia and Elgin Thanos develop a deeper friendship. That's interesting to watch.

The narration is wonderful.

I recommend this book. While it is a standalone reading A Soupcon of Poison & Death Below Stairs will better acquaint a reader with the recurring characters.

Good narration, Victorian mystery

This story continues from the prequel and the first book. A type of cozy Victorian mystery with just a touch of romance. The main character is a com in a house of the aristocracy. She is observant and solves the mystery.

A Great Listen

This is another great series from Jennifer Ashley...I love the characters & the story will keep you guessing. Just like Capt Lacy, there's always several story lines at the same time...I love Kat & Daniel!

Too much food. Not necessary to story.

It is a good story, but would have been half as long if preperation of every meal had not been described in great detail.
