Inside THE WHITE FEATHER MURDERS (Herringford and Watts Mysteries Book 3) by Rachel McMillan, I’m coming late to a series and discovering, even more, mysteries inside a Canadian, historical read which comes with many of today’s issues in our headlines!
Sleuthing with Merinda Herringford and Jem Watts, we are on the hunt in the Ward of Toronto upon issues happening with unsuspecting immigrants.
Notoriety can be liberating, but at the same time, it can be problematic. While empowering women in early 1900’s can not be an easy task, it becomes fashionable, but elites do not appreciate women in pants or inside the crime solving business.
Mysteries take us to dangerous situations, but oftentimes, we find ourselves without backup—save for a few close friends.
One murder happens inside a war declaration, and the mystery deepens. A solitary feather is not in one scene but two, tying both cases in one large puzzle. Meanwhile, news that Jem Watts is really Mrs. Jem DeLuca brings identity issues along for the ride, but once treachery comes close to home, friendships are tense and murder may come calling!
It is evident that politicking is a cutthroat career, but may it be deadly as well? How far up could this plot go?
***This opinion is my own.***
THE WHITE FEATHER MURDERS (Herringford and Watts Mysteries Book 3) by Rachel McMillan casts Toronto during 1914, and Merinda Herringford and Jem Watts have come to be a badge of female liberation.
However, the fresh from press fame does not shield them from World War I and all of its Canadian strife, but their recognition paints them with a bull’s–eye from Mayor Montague, both directly and indirectly. Is their Cartier Club a cause of murderous unrest?
Will one Italian husband and friend be taken from his family under the new alien identification process? Meanwhile, will Herringford and Watts survive the tumult of political corruption?
