Publisher's Summary

An action-packed tale of gowns, guys, guns - and the heroines who use them all

Set in turn of the century London, The Friday Society follows the stories of three very intelligent and talented young women, all of whom are assistants to powerful men: Cora, lab assistant; Michiko, Japanese fight assistant; and Nellie, magician's assistant. The three young women's lives become inexorably intertwined after a chance meeting at a ball that ends with the discovery of a murdered mystery man.

It's up to these three, in their own charming but bold way, to solve the murder - and the crimes they believe may be connected to it - without calling too much attention to themselves.

Set in the past but with a modern irreverent flare, this Steampunk whodunit introduces three unforgettable and very ladylike - well, relatively ladylike - heroines poised for more dangerous adventures.

Good author, bad narration

The author narrated her own story. Not the best choice. However, she did give it a good go. It was difficult to remain engrossed in what was a fun story, because of the narration. Kress over enunciated her words. The over enunciation made the flow of the story very rough and jagged. I would highly recommend that the author commission a professional narrator for her next books. I would love to enjoy more of her writings.

Good story

Good story, the reading was a little choppy and over-enunciated, but otherwise a good listen. I will get the follow up to this novel when it becomes available, as the three girls are quite likeable. I'd like to know where they end up with their adventures!
