Cracow, 1895. Zofia and her maid Francizka have their hands full organizing Easter festivities, especially with the household short one servant--where has the capable Karolcia disappeared to?

Shortly after, Zofia hears that the body of a young woman, violated and stabbed, has washed up on a bank of the River Vistula. Domestic work can wait--Zofia must go investigate. Shockingly, the body turns out to be none other than Karolcia... Working with the police, Zofia goes on the hunt, uncovering a prostitution ring, and implicating gangsters and politicians alike as she unravels an unexpectedly twisted tale of love and deceit.

"Written with abundant wit and flair,"** Cracow's finest, and most iconoclastic, amateur sleuth returns in a highly politicized feminist murder mystery.
