It's Boston in 1854. Louisa May Alcott isn't famous yet, but she's already writing. She's writing sensational thrillers, and little does she know that she's about to be caught up in a real-life murder. When her best friend is found floating in Boston Harbor, it's up to Louisa to become an amateur sleuth and bring the villain to justice. Anna Maclean's Louisa and the Missing Heiress is fiction, of course, not fact, a historical mystery with a basis in fact. The Alcotts were an interesting group, and Louisa's adventures
Anna Maclean is the pen name of Jeanne Mackin, a well-known historical novelist, and you can count on historical accuracy and good writing in her new series.
