Good To Know

In our exclusive interview with Albert, she revealed some fun facts about herself:

"My first job was selling ladies' undies at Woolworth's for 35 cents an hour in Danville, Illinois."

I learned to garden from my mother, who thought that the most important thing you did every spring was to plant the potatoes. I learned to read from my father, who never planted a potato in his life. Somehow, I managed to create a life and make a living between these two extremes. Happily, I haven't had to go back to selling undies. Not yet, anyway."

"I love living in the country with Bill, two black Labs, and a black cat. I'd rather read a book or write one than do just about anything else in the world, except maybe for gardening and sitting in a bathtub full of hot, hot water and bubbles. Or knitting, spinning, weaving, dyeing -- I'm a fiber-arts fanatic."

"You can find out what I'm doing today (or what I did yesterday) by checking out my web log, at susanalbert.typepad.com/lifescapes (but there's no web cam, so don't look for me in the bathtub)."

    Great historical mystery

    By the latter half of the nineteenth century, radical change sweeps across England as the aristocracy knows their centuries-old lifestyle is ending. Some such as Lord Charles Sheridan and his wife Lady Kathryn relish the increase freedoms that allow them to pursue their personal interests without censor. Charles enjoys photography and sleuthing while Kathryn loves writing mystery novels. As a team, the duo has solved real life cases including homicides. <P>Another independent eccentric is Jennie Jerome Churchill, who adores her son Winston and will do anything to further along his political aspirations. Though Jennie is bankrupt, she willingly pays off a blackmailer who swears he has proof that her late husband was Jack the Ripper. When the picture falls into the hands of another blackmailer, Jennie turns to Charles and Kathryn for help. The duo investigates the scenario and soon concludes that the identity of Jack reaches the top layer of the Royal Family and thus must remain secret. <P>Ripperologists will absolutely go jacks over DEATH AT WHITECHAPEL while fans of well-written historical mysteries will relish the depth of detail provided by Robin Paige. The apt use of historical personage adds glamour, flavor, and a feel of reality to the stupendous story line. The protagonists represent a new order as they are free thinkers living independently of the few shallow barriers holding back their class. Ms. Paige has provided her audience with a page burner that will have new readers seeking out previous tales in one of the best historical mystery series available. <P>Harriet Klausner

    I love the theories about Jack the Ripper. This has to be the best of the Series in my opinion.

    This book is one of the best of the series. It explores one of the theories behind Jack the Ripper in London. What was interesting when I read this book was that I had taken one of the Jack the Ripper tours in London a few months prior and the theory explored in this book was suggested on the tour. I love the Sheridans and wish the series had continued. The historical detail mixed with the "new" technologies of the time and the personalities of the characters, including Winston Churchill, is interesting and entertaining. Loved it!
