Description

In December 1906, Harry Reese follows his roving wife to Washington for a reunion with the formidable Countess von Schnurrenberger und Kesselheim. There he finds himself entangled in a mystery involving an erotic novel, a meat cleaver, several coded communiques, a potent female aphrodisiac, a certain bit of anatomy belonging to a certain senator's wife, and, most tellingly, a German count who has mansplained himself into an early grave.... This novel is told in two parts. In the first, Harry provides an account of the crimes, suspects, and clues-including myriad misdirections-as he assists the pompous police detective working the case. In the second part, told by a precocious young girl then staying with the countess, details are filled in, motivations explained, and secrets revealed....
