About this item

"A Death of No Importance has such rich historic detail that you feel as if you've been transported to early twentieth century New York. Mariah Fredericks is the best at creating compulsively addictive, fresh, twisty reads." -- Meg Cabot

Jane Prescott has perfected the art of serving as a ladies' maid in the upper-most echelons of 1910 New York City society. Invisible until she's needed, Jane has a deft hand and a sharp, observant mind. Which means she sees a lot more than the wealthy, glamorous people she serves realize. When her mistress, Charlotte Benchley, surprises the family by getting engaged to notorious society playboy Norrie Newsome, Jane understands how the engagement might have come to pass, and what it means for both families. And when Norrie is suddenly and gruesomely murdered, Jane is uniquely positioned to understand who might have wanted him dead -- from the family he was supposed to marry into before he proposed to Charlotte, to the survivors of a tragic accident in a mine owned by the Newsome family, to the rising anarchists in industrial revolution-era New York City who are sick of the elite classes getting away with anything they want simply because they were born wealthy.

Jane's thoughtful, clear-eyed, and often humorous voice leads us into the heart of a gripping, atmospheric murder mystery in Mariah Fredericks's debut adult novel.

Sorry,this is coming. I've just experienced a bout of amnesia and have forgotten everything about myself.
