Description

For the firm of Carpenter and Quincannon, Professional Detective Services, stopping extortionists is not only grand, but excitingly lucrative.

When a pleasant afternoon’s bicycling through Golden Gate Park with a friend ends with the revelation of threatening letters, followed by a gunshot in a mansion garden, Sabina Carpenter knows this is a case that demands her immediate and undivided attention.

The questions her partner John Quincannon has to unravel are not difficult: Wrixton, a wealthy banker, has met his extortionist's first demand, but the order to pay another $5,000 is too much to face. The banker’s real problem is something he doesn't want to reveal. That was fine with the detective, and when he was informed that some private letters were involved and Wrixton absolutely needed them back, there was nothing more Quincannon needed in the way of background. As with so many of San Francisco’s elite, the bedroom doors never seemed to stay shut.

That was the easy part; far more difficult was the matter of the dead courier, murdered most foully in a locked room within a locked room, creating a trail that will take John Quincannon through most of San Francisco’s less savory places and end with a riverboat trip that is anything but a relaxing cruise.

The Dangerous Ladies Affair is the next thrilling installment in this charming historical mystery series from MWA Grand Masters Marcia Muller and Bill Pronzini.

From Publishers Weekly

Nov 21, 2016 – In MWA grand masters Muller and Pronzini's sprightly fifth mystery set in late 19th-century San Francisco (after 2016's The Plague of Thieves), Sabina Carpenter, an ardent suffragette, bicycling enthusiast, and self-described New Woman ("the term used to describe the modern woman who broke with the traditional role of wife and mother by working outside the home"), investigates death threats received by her new friend Amity Wellman, a Votes for Women activist. Meanwhile, poetry-reading but handy-with-his-fists John Quincannon, Sabina's partner in Professional Detective Services, tracks down the mastermind of a blackmailing scheme and tackles a locked-room murder. The reader gets a glimpse of "less than respectable" theater performances, passenger ships on the Sacramento River, and anti-suffragette protestors, as well as being treated to the delicate unfolding of tender feelings between the two protagonists.
