Mrs. Jeffries Takes a Second Look
by Emily Brightwell

This book is a trade paperback anthology of the following three Mrs. Jeffries Victorian Mysteries that were previously published as separate titles in paperback format.

Mrs. Jeffries Takes Stock (originally published June 1994 — #4 Victorian Mystery)
When her employer, Inspector Witherspoon, is saddled with the baffling murder of a man who had allegedly cheated his stockholders out of a fortune, housekeeper Mrs. Jeffries comes to the rescue.

Mrs. Jeffries on the Ball (originally published December 1994 — #5 Victorian Mystery)
Festivities turn fatal when Hannah Greenwood is found dead at a Jubilee Ball honoring Queen Victoria. But fear not, Inspector Witherspoon and Mrs. Jeffries are also in attendance. They are soon hard at work exposing old secrets and petty jealousies in the prestigious Hyde Park Literary Circle, of which the victim was a much-hated member.

Mrs. Jeffries on the Trail (originally published April 1995 — #6 Victorian Mystery)
Inspector Witherspoon of Scotland Yard resorts once again to his housekeeping super-sleuth, Mrs. Jeffries, when a girl flower-peddler is killed on a foggy night in Victorian London.
