From the New York Times bestselling author of Death Below Stairs

A mystery of stolen antiquities has Kat Holloway setting aside her apron once again for the intrigues of the upper echelons of Victorian London

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 antiques are disappearing not only from the extravagant households of connoisseurs and collectors, but 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.

From Publishers Weekly

May 07, 2018 – In Ashley's capable second Below Stairs mystery set in late Victorian London (after 2017's Death Below Stairs), Lady Cynthia, the unconventional sister of cook Kat Holloway's titled employer, asks Kat to investigate the theft of paintings from the home of Clementina, Lady Godfrey. Since Clemmie has large gambling debts, she's the obvious suspect, but she swears she's innocent. Meanwhile, Kat's enigmatic friend, Daniel McAdam, is working undercover, posing as a broker at a pawnshop, to help discover the source of stolen antiques that have been appearing on the black market. Daniel disappears at the same time that an unidentified male corpse turns up at the pawnshop. Terrified for his safety, Kat begins to wonder whether the thefts of paintings and antiques might be linked, so she enlists Daniel's brilliant friend, Elgin Thanos, to help investigate. Neither the mystery plot, which depends on major coincidences, nor Kat's ability to juggle her demanding job and serious sleuthing feels entirely convincing, but the progress of two charming romances between Kat and Daniel, Cynthia and Elgin will leave readers eager for more.

Customer Reviews

Scandal Above Stairs

Excellent! So glad to have found this great author!

Scandal Above Stairs

I thoroughly enjoyed both books in this “series”...wink, wink, nudge, nudge. I am truly looking forward to future stories with Kat and Daniel...McAdams! Get busy, Ashley, please!

Scandal Above Stairs

I'm a book lover first, a professed Anglophile second, and fan of mysteries last. The author has provided her readers with Victorian history so beautifully descriptive, the words come alive.
