The author of No Comfort for the Lost returns with a new mystery of Old San Francisco. British-born nurse Celia Davies runs a free medical clinic to assist the poor women of San Francisco. She has earned the trust and friendship of many of the city's downtrodden, including a young orphan named Owen. Owen works for a real estate company and discovered a dead body in the office's basement. Celia turns to Detective Nick Greaves for help, only to learn that one of the main suspects-the husband of Celia's dearest friend-is an old enemy of Nick's. Now, Celia and Nick must put aside their personal feelings about the case-and each other-if they're going to bring a killer to justice.

"Stina Nielsen, who narrated NO COMFORT FOR THE LOST, is completely at home delivering the second in Herriman's Mystery of Old San Francisco series. This time, nurse Celia Davies and detective Nick Greaves are on the hunt for answers after 14-year-old Owen digs up a body under the basement floor of the offices of a dodgy real estate company. Nielsen's portrayal of Owen is so real listeners will swear there's a teenager in the room. Her Celia is spunky, conflicted about her attraction to Nick, and incorrigible. Her version of Nick sounds like a man trying to be nonjudgmental but whose bias is showing. The plotting is clever, the characters are appealing, and Stina Nielsen's performance makes this first-rate series even better. S.J.H. © AudioFile 2017, Portland, Maine"
