The Servant's Voice
by Penelope Wallace
Q34. Can the poor ever get justice?
In the land of Ricossa, rich people use brutal & permanent methods to protect their secrets.
A pauper is knocked down & killed in a tavern. Drunken manslaughter or deliberate murder? The victim’s niece, Hridnaya, is determined to find out which.
But the case has already been closed. She’s an insignificant servant. She can’t read or write.
And she can't talk.
