THE PROBLEM OF THE MISSING HOYDEN: review
It's the Summer of 1885 in the English seaside town of Brighton, Arthur Conan Doyle is on his honeymoon and Charles Dodgson (aka "Lewis Carroll") is supposed to be at the railway station to pick up his young charge, the daughter of a prominent parliamentarian, entrusted into his care. A girl falls beneath the wheels; was it an accident, or was she pushed? So begins a thoroughly entertaining and well written "what if" tale of mystery and detection. Roberta Rogow is an author new to me but I shall be seeking out her other novels in this series. Highly recommended.
