    Inspector Fields showed Dickens and Collins the body of a young woman pulled from the river.  He never expected Dickens to recognize her and get involved in the case.

    Severn House and Net Galley let me read this book for review (thank you).  It will be published July 1st.

    Dickens helps pay for a house where female orphans are taken in.  He met her there but she didn't stay too long.  She was a little too mouthy and mindful to fit in well and she found another home where she could serve as a servant and she and her friend went there together.  How did she end up strangled in the river?

    As Dickens works on the case, the other girl sends him off on another path by pretending there are notes hidden in the dead girl's room.  She figures the dead girl was blackmailing someone and she wants that money.

    Dickens persists in his investigation and finds out what Isabella knew.  Now he just has to figure out a few more things and he will have the killer's name.  He soon figures out the notes are not from Isabella.  While he's working this all out, the other girl is putting herself in danger.  Will he be in time to save her?
