Kate Ross“The Lullaby Cheat” by Kate Ross


Story 358/366

Kate Ross was a trial lawyer who became a novelist and died at 41 from breast cancer. There’s a kind of Downton Abbey feel to the story of a disgraced nursemaid. The tale features Julian Kestrel, a dandy who was Ross’ favorite character. This story appears in Crime Through Time, an anthology edited by Miriam Grace Monfredo and Sharan Newman. (By the way, this anthology of historical mysteries is a bargain at $.01 plus postage on Amazon.)
