Felicity Carrol and the Murderous Menace is the second book in a cozy mystery series by Patricia Marcantonio. Released 11th Feb 2020 by Crooked Lane Books, it is 324 pages long and available in hardcover and ebook formats.

Despite being the second book in the series, it works well as a standalone. This book features a likable heroine and charming supporting characters, as well as an imaginative take on the still-unsolved Jack the Ripper murders. Indeed, the author might just be on to something with the possible identity of the killer!

The level of medical detail is pretty intense, and while Felicity herself isn’t bothered by this, some readers may find it a little gruesome. The book sympathetically portrays the difficult lives of women, many of whom have ended up in prostitution, on the American frontier.
