The third Edwardian mystery in this historical fiction series by Lesley Cookman
The Alexandria introduces a controversial male impersonator to the stage. Played by the very well known Jessie James, this entertainer is very much in the vein of Vesta Tilley.
Chased from her home by her strict Baptist father, Jessie has been sent to Dorinda by Amy, the former Lady Washington, now Mrs Jeremy Coutts, who has said that The Alexandria is a good place to hide.
But when your act is so unconventional, you can't stay hidden forever.
