Praise for Maureen Jennings and A Journeyman to Grief
• "Jennings's best to date. . . . The excellent plot takes us into the unknown (to most readers, I think) history of the small black community in 19th-century Toronto. How they came there, how they lived, is as engrossing as the mystery . . . of the abducted bride." --Margaret Cannon, Globe and Mail
• "Jennings is a master at drawing out her characters." --Victoria Times-Colonist
• "A surprisingly tender tale of slavery, addiction, violence and revenge served ice-cold." --Kirkus Reviews
• "Within a few pages . . . we are firmly and happily ensconced in the late-19th-century world Jennings has created. . . . First-time readers can enjoy this as a standalone novel, and we will have the additional pleasure of knowing there are six more Detective Murdoch novels waiting to be read." --Quill & Quire
About the Author
Born in England, MAUREEN JENNINGS emigrated to Canada as a teenager. The first Detective Murdoch Mystery was published in 1997. Six more followed, all to enthusiastic reviews. In 2003, Shaftesbury Films adapted three of the novels into movies of the week, and four years later the Murdoch Mysteries TV series was created; it is now shown around the world, including in the UK, the United States (as The Artful Detective), and much of Europe, as well as on Canada's national broadcast network, CBC TV. The Detective Inspector Tom Tyler series, set in World War II-era England, got off to a spectacular start with 2011's Season of Darkness, followed by Beware This Boy (2012), No Known Grave (2014), and Dead Ground in Between (2016). Maureen lives in Toronto with her husband and their two dogs, Varley and Murdoch. The author lives in Toronto, ON.
