Published: April 17, 2010.
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 world created by Locke in her Victorian San Francisco Mystery series, which includes Maids of Misfortune, Uneasy Spirits, and Bloody Lessons and the short story The Misses Moffet Mend a Marriage.
