Overview

When Denton, the famous American author and expatriate in turn-of-the-century London, receives a letter from a young woman saying she’s in danger and needs his help, he doubts there’s anything he can do. The letter is months old, and was only forwarded to him when the buyer of a painting found it stuck behind the frame. But why did she hide the note instead of sending it? The search for answers leads Denton into the heart of Bohemian London—the world of artists and their models, of brilliance and depravity, where the border between genius and madness is hard to discern but easy to cross. And before he has learned the shocking truth, Denton will discover what it’s like to be the object of a lethal obsession and endure a terrifying confrontation with his own demons.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Set at the turn of the 20th century, Cameron's memorable sequel to 2009's The Frightened Man finds General Denton, American expatriate and novelist, returned to his London home after six month's travel on the Continent, which included a lengthy stint in a Central European prison. In his mail, Denton finds a two-month-old letter from a Mary Thomason asking him to help her evade a threat. Thomason's plea was forwarded by one Aubrey Heseltine, who discovered the letter attached to the back of a painting he just purchased. Denton, his curiosity piqued, seeks out Heseltine to get a lead on his would-be client. Meanwhile, Denton himself becomes the object of interest of an unknown watcher. The two story strands weave together nicely before coming to resolutions that are anything but obvious. Other authors have set mysteries in the same period and place, but Cameron stands out by virtue of his fine plotting and distinctive characters. (June)
Library Journal
Just back from a stay in a Transylvanian prison, American author Denton receives a letter sent months earlier from a woman who claimed to be in danger and sought his help. He also finds himself the stalking victim of a man who wants Denton's success and identity. VERDICT In this successful follow-up to his Edgar Award-nominated debut, The Frightened Man, Cameron displays his knowledge of life in Edwardian England and the tense political landscape that existed in Europe prior to World War I. Sure to appeal to readers who love historical mysteries intertwined with the edgy interpersonal relationships found in Anne Perry's work. [Library marketing.]

    a terrific historical thriller

    After traveling by motor car with his faithful companions Rupert and Harold on the continent for the last six months, tired American novelist General Denton returns to his home in London. He hopes to obtain some respite having spent two months of his time in a horrible Transylvanian jail, but feels the jaunt in the jalopy was worth it.

    However, rest will wait when he opens a two month old letter of desperation from Mary Thomason, whom he does not know. She pleaded with him to help her. Denton learns that Aubrey Heseltine delivered the letter that he had found attached to the back of a painting. While Denton seeks to learn more about his potential client, someone is stalking Denton.

    This is an excellent early twentieth century mystery that contains two strong subplots in which Kenneth Cameron seemingly effortlessly interweaves them back and forth before tying them together. Fast-paced yet enabling the reader to have a strong sense of time and place, The Bohemian Girl is a terrific historical thriller due to a powerful cast led by General (see The Frightened Man for his previous appearance).
