I liked this fiction murder mystery. The police say Anne Clifton committed suicide. Ursula Kern, proprietor of Kern Secretarial Agency, believes Anne may have been murdered. Because Anne was more than just an employee to Ursula, Ursula intends to fully investigate Anne's mysterious death. Archaeologist and adventurer Slater Roxton is not pleased when Ursula informs him she will be leaving his employment to take on a personal assignment. He is even less thrilled when he discovers exactly what Ursula plans on doing. Slater is convinced that Ursula's meddling in the official inquiry into Anne's death could very well result in yet another murder: Ursula's. Teaming up with her is the only logical solution as far as Slater is concerned, and this means finding some way of convincing Ursula to accept him as her new partner in detection. In London, during the late Victorian period, women have few opportunities for respectable income. Ursula Kern, hiding from a previous scandal, has opened a secretarial agency, using the new typewriting technology to place her clients in well-paying positions. When friend and colleague Ann Clifton is found dead, Ursula immediately suspects murder. Her own contract employer, amateur archaeologist Slater Roxton, is pulled into her investigation of criminal activities including murder, blackmail, and drugs.
