Except The Dying (Paperback)
|Author: Maureen Jennings|
From the Publisher:
In the cold Toronto winter of 1895, the unclad body of a servant girl is found frozen in a deserted laneway. The young victim was pregnant when she died. Was her death an attempt to cover up a scandal in one of the city's influential families? Detective William Murdoch quickly finds out that more than one person connected with the girl's simple life has something to hide.
"Although he solves his case in a fairly conventional way, there's more to Murdoch than his genre traits, and his warm heart makes him the right sleuth for this cold city." - Marilyn Stasio 12/14/1997
