SusannaG - Confessions of a Crazy Cat Lady

Just another GR refugee.  Other than that, I had a stroke in 2004, and read almost anything I can get my hands on, though I have a particular weakness for history, mystery, and historical fiction.

Some Danger Involved

Some Danger Involved: A Novel - Will Thomas

In 1884 London, a Jew, a rabbinical student, has been found in Aldgate (home of most of the city's Jews) - crucified.  With a threatening message from the Anti-Semite League attached.  Our detectives, er, private enquiry agents, are hired by Lord Rothschild to prevent a pogrom, and to find the killer.


Yes, some danger will be involved.


This was a fun romp through mid-1880s London, and I will look for other books in the series.
