Wow, Charles Dickens is using Ann Charles as a pen name? Nope.
Even if it's not Dickens this has been the best of the Deadwood Mysteries as of yet. Violet Parker really becomes the "Scharfrichter" in this book and takes her crew to Slagtown to take on the Hunter and is scouts, to try to become the Queen of Slagtown. Violet starts getting comfortable with her new powers, well comfortable might be generous but she finds she can draw from her power easier than before. This book has a lot going for it and has more action than any of the other books in this series. Okay, maybe action as in fighting, not action as in time spent with Doc, her boyfriend, but there is that action too.
