(The second book in the Monsarrat series)
A novel by

 
 
Charming gentleman convict Hugh Monsarrat returns in this second novel in the thrilling and spellbinding historical crime series from Thomas Keneally and his daughter Meg Keneally featuring his signature "fresh and engaging" (The New York Times) prose.

Recently arrived from Port Macquarie, ticket-of-leave gentleman convict Hugh Llewelyn Monsarrat now lives in a small but comfortable house in Parramatta with his loyal housekeeper, Mrs. Mulrooney.

Monsarrat is now working for the Attorney General's office, officially as a clerk, but also as an unofficial advisor on criminal and legal matters. One day, he is informed that the superintendent of the female prison, Robert Church, has been murdered.

Apparently, a female convict named Grace O'Leary held a particular grudge against him and is being detained for questioning. Monsarrat's task is to take a statement from her. Grace doesn't strike Monsarrat as a murderer and she insists she's innocent. Monsarrat and Mrs. Mulrooney both believe her, but are at a loss as to how to help her. A number of people held grudges against Church and many are relieved by his death, but who would go so far as to murder him?
