About the Author
Praise For Night's Child: A Detective Murdoch Mystery…
“The portrayal of Victorian life in Toronto rings true. We feel the chill of the poorly heated rooms and sympathize with all those at the margins of society. . . . This is a well-written, tightly plotted mystery.”
— Quill & Quire
“Jennings has . . . a fine eye for telling details and good characters.”
— Globe and Mail
