The Impersonator
"In 1917, Jessie Carr, fourteen years old and sole heiress to her family's vast fortune, disappeared without a trace. Now, years later, her uncle Oliver Beckett thinks he's found her: a young actress in a vaudeville playhouse is a dead ringer for his missing niece. But when Oliver confronts the girl, he learns he's wrong. Orphaned young, Leah's been acting since she was a toddler. Oliver, never one to miss an opportunity, makes a proposition: with his coaching, Leah can impersonate Jessie, claim the fortune, and split it with him"--Dust jacket flap.

Great first book. Eagerly awaiting the second Silent Murders. BPL has ordered the audiobook but not the actual book. I'm hoping they'll be ordering the book

I love reading about this era. This one however falls flat on its well made up face. Not really a mystery, I could guess the surprise shortly into the book, and not really historical fiction, it adds details that are truly pedantic, I found it a quick dull read. And then to find out it is a rehash of a Josephine Tey book, I felt robbed. As should the publishing house that bestowed its award such an undeserving candidate.
