Praise For People of Abandoned Character

"This debut historical mystery contains echoes of Daphne du Maurier’s Rebecca and Jack the Ripper. The unreliable narration combines with richly detailed writing in a mystery with a shocking conclusion." —Library Journal, starred review

"Astonishing . . . I'd be amazed if it isn't dominating the shortlists come next year's awards season." —M.W. Craven

“[A] suspenseful gothic debut.” —Shelf Awareness

“This Gothic gaslight thriller presents a genuinely fresh twist on the subgenre of investigating Jack the Ripper.” —Criminal Element
