A photographer in 1889 London, Miss Sarah Bain runs a private detective agency with her friends, Lord Hugh Staunton and former street urchin Mick O'Reilly. Their sole credential is that they solved the Jack the Ripper case, a secret they can never tell because they did it outside the boundaries of the law. Their new big case arises when a wealthy banker, Sir Gerald Mariner, posts a handsome reward for finding his missing infant. All of London joins in the search. But Sarah has an advantage--a photograph she took during a routine surveillance job, which unexpectedly reveals a clue about the kidnapping.--Provided by Publisher.

I love Laura Joh Rowland's books. If you like Victorian era novels, especially mysteries, then you will probably like this one. Unfortunately for me, I am not into Victorian novels and I am way too used to Rowland's feudal Japan mysteries (I have read them all). So I decided to try this new genre of hers, but after about 60 pages, realized it wasn't going to keep my attention. I am very impressed with Rowland's creativity and courage to take this leap from one side of the world to the other, and one culture to another. I hope you enjoy the book.
