Recently unemployed, Faye Burner talks her semi-retired sister Barbara into opening a detective agency. Their first few months are disappointing. No one in their small town believes two fifty-something women can succeed as detectives.

Faye wants to ask their well-connected sister Retta for help, but Barb insists she's too bossy and manipulative to be part of their business. While that's true, Faye can't resist letting Retta in on their first real case when they're hired to find Neil Brown, a man accused of murdering his wife and brother-in-law. While Retta is helpful, Barb and she are both interested in the handsome new police chief, which makes having them in the same room together uncomfortable.

When the sisters locate Brown, bad things begin to happen, escalating from scare tactics to assault to murder. Someone doesn't want the old case stirred up, and that person is willing to kill again. If the Sleuth Sisters don't work together, they'll be less one sibling!

It is 1644, and Parliament's armies have risen against the King and laid siege to the city of York. Even as the city suffers at the rebels' hands, midwife Bridget Hodgson becomes embroiled in a different sort of rebellion. One of Bridget's friends, Esther Cooper, has been convicted of murdering her husband and sentenced to be burnt alive. Convinced that her friend is innocent, Bridget sets out to find the real killer.

Bridget joins forces with Martha Hawkins, a servant who's far more skilled with a knife than any respectable woman ought to be. To save Esther from the stake, they must dodge rebel artillery, confront a murderous figure from Martha's past, and capture a brutal killer who will stop at nothing to cover his tracks. The investigation takes Bridget and Martha from the homes of the city's most powerful families to the alleyways of its poorest neighborhoods. As they delve into the life of Esther's murdered husband, they discover that his ostentatious Puritanism hid a deeply sinister secret life, and that far too often tyranny and treason go hand in hand.

Alex Prevost — kidnapped, savagely beaten, suspended from the ceiling of an abandoned warehouse in a tiny wooden cage — is running out of time. Her abductor appears to want only to watch her die. Will hunger, thirst, or the rats get her first?

Apart from a shaky eyewitness report of the abduction, Police Commandant Camille Verhoeven has nothing to go on: no suspect, no leads, and no family or friends anxious to find a missing loved one. The diminutive and brilliant detective knows from bitter experience the urgency of finding the missing woman as quickly as possible — but first he must understand more about her.

As he uncovers the details of the young woman's singular history, Camille is forced to acknowledge that the person he seeks is no ordinary victim. She is beautiful, yes, but also extremely tough and resourceful. Before long, saving Alex's life will be the least of Commandant Verhoeven's considerable challenges.
