Penny Dreadful - (The Penny Wanawake Mysteries)
Penny Wanawake — big, black and sexy — exploded onto the detection scene in Penny Black. This is her second adventure.
When Max Maunciple, a novelist feared for his vitriolic pen, dies from an apparent surfeit of gin, only Penny suspects that his death may not be from natural causes. Aided by a handsome American policeman holidaying in England, she sets out to discover the truth.
