Mrs. Stein Solves a Crime

Mrs. Stein Solves a Crime

A Victorian San Francisco Novella


Esther and Herman Stein were the first people to move into Annie Dawson’s San Francisco O’Farrell Street boardinghouse. They are also two of Annie biggest supporters, yet Esther has always disapproved of how often Annie’s work as a financial advisor has led her into criminal investigations. All this will change when Esther’s husband is out of town, and she is confronted with a crime of her own to solve. Chronologically, this novella comes in the summer of 1882, soon after the events in Entangled Threads, the eight novel in the Victorian San Francisco Mystery series, but it doesn’t need to be read in that order. As with the other shorter works in this series, Mrs. Stein Solves a Crime gives a minor character the chance to play a starring role.
