Can Adele Gossling find out who killed the daring young man on the flying trapeze when the circus comes to town?

In 1905, the Barry Circus makes its way to Arrojo, an event filled with chills, thrills, and enchantment. The whole town is buzzing with excitement to see Julius Rowe, the "daring young man on the flying trapeze". To the crowds, he's the handsome and dashing star of the show. To his fellow performers, he's arrogant, demanding, and a little too ruthless. But who cares, as long as the crowds can't get enough of him?

Then on opening night, the unthinkable happens — Julius misses that third somersault and falls into the net, instantly killed.

The police are baffled. Was it an accident? Was it murder? And if it was murder, who did it? Was it the husband of Julius' latest conquest or the lady herself, proving that a woman scorned can be a dangerous thing? Or was it one of the other performers for reasons of his or her own? It's up to Adele Gossling and her friend Nin Branch to help when the circus closes ranks against the police.

Join one of the early 20th century's clever sleuths and her clairvoyant sidekick as they follow the trail of a lost scarf, a serrated knife, and misguided ambition.

Read the next installment of this 1900s series reviewers are calling "fun", "well-paced", and "entertaining".

About the Author

As soon as Tam May started her first novel at the age of fourteen, writing became her voice. She writes engaging, fun-to-solve cozy mysteries set in the past. Her mysteries empower readers with a sense of “justice is done” for women, both dead and alive. Her fiction is set in the San Francisco Bay Area because she adores sourdough bread, Ghirardelli chocolate, and San Francisco history.

Tam is the author of the Adele Gossling Mysteries which take place in the early 20th century and feature sassy suffragist and epistolary expert Adele Gossling whose talent for solving crimes doesn’t sit well with her town’s Victorian ideas about women’s place in life.

Tam has also written historical fiction about women defying the emotional and psychological confinements of their era. Her post-World War II short story collection, *Lessons From My Mother’s Life,* debuted at #1 in its category on Amazon, and the first book of her Gilded Age family saga, the Waxwood Series, *The Specter*, is in the top 20 in several categories and is available for free.

Although Tam left her heart in San Francisco, she lives in Texas because it’s cheaper. When she’s not writing, she’s devouring everything classic (books, films, art, music) and concocting yummy vegetarian dishes in her kitchen.
