Inhaltsangabe zu „Wild Nights: A Mystery with Mary Wollstonecraft“ von Nancy Means-Wright

Sent to Paris by her publisher to “write up” the French Revolution, Mary Wollstonecraft meets a charismatic American captain and “loses” her own head. There is little time for love and writing though, when two dead men fall into her life and she must run down the killer. “Captivating… As Mary snoops around in search of the culprit, she is bound not to lose herself to the mystery, her job, or the charms of any man. Wright deftly illuminates eighteenth-century class tensions.” --Publishers Weekly “Wright captures the character of intellectual London brilliantly. ..I appreciate Wright’s ability to model her fictional Mary with the clay of the historical person, keeping her personality and foibles and not pretending that when faced with a murder she could suddenly become Sherlock Holmes.”---Historical Novel Society “Mary is a memorable character—passionate, headstrong, intelligent, emotional, feisty, impulsive… There’s a solid sense of place and plot to spare, but characterization is the author’s real strength.”--Kim Malo,
