It's 1879, San Francisco swelters under a heat wave and Barbara Hewitt, a reserved school-teacher, uncovers a mystery with the help of a dog named Dandy. This short story is set in the gas-lit Victorian world created by Locke in her historical mystery, Maids of Misfortune. For those of you already familiar with that world, welcome back, for those who are not, welcome!
