She Be Damned
London courtesan or professional sleuth?
London, 1863: Women in Waterloo are turning up dead, their sexual organs mutilated and removed. When another girl goes missing, fears grow that the killer may have claimed their latest victim.
The police are at a loss and so it falls to courtesan and professional detective, Heloise Chancey, to investigate.
With the assistance of her trusty Chinese maid, Amah Li Leen, Heloise inches closer to the truth. But when Amah is implicated in the brutal plot, Heloise must reconsider who she can trust, before the killer strikes again.
“Heloise Chancey is a marvellous character, a gutsy amboyant self-made woman and expert guide to the nether regions of Victorian London” – Award-winning novelist, Marele Day
“If you like your heroines flamboyant, your servants mouthy, and your murders bloody, She Be Damned is the perfect book to get both your historical fiction fix and a head start on an excellent upcoming series.”
“…the mystery was fantastic, gruesome, but good.”
