Comeuppance Served Cold
Marion Deeds's Comeuppance Served Cold is a hard-boiled historical fantasy of criminality and magic, couched in the glamour of Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries. In the wake of the 1929 stock market crash, Seattle's powerful Commission of Magi is moving against the city's most vulnerable magic users and merchants under the guise of protecting law-abiding citizens. Meanwhile, an unassuming young lady with hidden skills and a nebulous past named Dolly White enters the employ of the head commissioner's family as a lady's companion. Although she has her own agenda to fulfill, it may prove to be the perfect opportunity for one family who's suffered tremendous loss at the hands of the Commission to get their overdue vengeance.
