Clever, compelling and atmospheric, we think it’s a must for any crime fan. Set in New York 1896, Louisa Conan Doyle (Arthur’s first wife) becomes embroiled in a gruesomely depraved series of murders that she has to solve while her husband is on a book tour of the US. Dripping with period detail the novel's heroine embodies the aspirations and fears of women at the time. Highly recommended.

If you like Kenneth Cameron you might also like to read books by Nicola Upson, Jed Rubenfeld and Kate Williams.

Synopsis

Winter at Death's Hotel by Kenneth Cameron

New York, January 1896. Arthur Conan Doyle, the renowned creator of Sherlock Holmes, arrives at the Britannic Hotel with his wife, Louisa, ready to begin his first American tour. While he prepares his lectures, Louisa becomes mesmerised by this brash, vibrant, dangerous city, especially when a woman's brutally butchered corpse is found in a Bowery alley and Louisa is convinced from the artist's sketch in the paper that she'd seen the victim at the hotel. Arthur is patronisingly sceptical about her womanly 'fantasies' but when she sprains her ankle and is forced to remain at the hotel while Arthur goes on tour, Louisa cannot resist pursuing her intuitions. And when more bodies start appearing, she's convinced that she holds the key to the killings. With the help of the hotel's hard-bitten detective and an ambitious female news reporter, Louisa starts to piece together a story of madness, murder and depravity - a story that leads inexorably back to the hotel itself, the strange story of its unique construction and a madman who is watching her every move.
