"Kate Shackleton joins Jacqueline Winspear's Maisie Dobbs. They make excellent heroines." --Literary Review Frances Brody's "refreshingly complex heroine" (Kirkus Reviews), picks up a case that takes her to the refined streets of 1920s Harrogate in A Medal for Murder A pawn-shop robbery It's no rest for the wicked as Kate Shackleton picks up her second professional sleuthing case. But exposing the culprit of a pawn-shop robbery turns sinister when her investigation takes her to Harrogate in Yorkshire, England - and murder is only one step behind ... A fatal stabbing A night at the theatre should have been just what the doctor ordered, until Kate stumbles across a body in the doorway. The knife sticking out of its chest definitely suggests a killer in the theatre's midst. A ransom demand Kate likes nothing better than a mystery - and nothing better than solving them. So when a ransom note demands 1,000 for the safe return of the play's leading lady, the refined streets of Harrogate play host to Kate's skills in piecing together clues - and luring criminals out of their lairs.

Professional reviews

"In the 1920s, English widower Kate Shackleton embarks upon her second investigation, which takes her into the neighborhood of Harrogate in search of merchandise stolen from a pawn shop. British copper Jim Sykes partners with her as time permits. Neither suspects that they will soon search for a missing leading lady and receive a large ransom demand or that they will cross paths with a killer. Elizabeth Jasicki's rich British accent persuasively reflects a multiplicity of unusual characters and suspects in this delightful mystery. Her skillful pacing and nuances of accents add texture to the characterizations, and her manipulation of pitch and tone reveal gender and ages. With so many twists and turns, this one will keep listeners guessing. G.D.W. (c) AudioFile 2013, Portland, Maine"
