Crime Stack: The Benevolent Society of Ill-mannered Ladies by Alison Goodman

For the June Crime Stack, Harper Collins Publishing has kindly offered 20 copies of The Benevolent Society of Ill-mannered Ladies, by Melbourne-based Alison Goodman, the New York Times bestselling author of Eon and Eona and The Dark Days Club trilogy. Alison mostly writes YA fiction but her very adult thriller, A New Kind of Death, was a Davitt Award finalist under its original title, Killing the Rabbit.
In The Benevolent Society of Ill-mannered Ladies, a high society amateur detective at the heart of Regency London uses her wits and invisibility as an ‘old maid’ to protect other women in this new and fiercely feminist historical mystery series.

Lady Augusta Colebrook, ‘Gus’, is determinedly unmarried, bored by society life, and tired of being dismissed at the age of forty-two. She and her twin sister, Julia, who is grieving her dead betrothed, need a distraction. One soon presents itself: to rescue their friend’s goddaughter, Caroline, from her violent husband . . . 

The Crime Stack is a benefit for Sisters in Crime members. Every month there are 20 books to win in a random draw of members.
