It's 1898, and Fiona MacGillivray is running a dance hall in Dawson City, Yukon. "Dance hall" and "respectable" would not seem to go together, but it is 1898, and it is Canada, even during a gold rush. There are decency laws. And Fiona is raising a son, twelve-year-old Angus. The lead dancer is still fully covered when she finishes the Dance of the Seven Veils, and the Savoy is the most popular dance hall in Dawson.

There's also the little potential

Another fun read with some of the same flaws as the earlier books in the series plus a few new things that left me kinda shaking my head a bit but still overall a really enjoyable book! As in all the books in this series Angus is much too mature for 12 years old. 12 going on 21 is more like it and in reality a 12 year old in 2014 would be more mature and knowledgable mentally than a 12 year old in the late 1890s but the 1890s 12 year old would possibly be more physically mature.

I missed the earlier books in this series, which tells me I need to visit more than one branch of the library! A pretty good book. The Klondike at this time in history was a rough and tumble place and the book tells that story. The character of Fiona was imaginary, but for sure there were women like her. Wherever you found miners (or cowboys)with money to spend, there were women to spend it on. Living in tents or flimsily constructed sheds did not contribute to fine living and cleanliness was ...more

I am a huge fan of Canadian mystery author Vicky Delany. This is the first Klondike mystery that I've had the pleasure of reading.

This series is fairly unique as there are not a lot of mystery series set in Canada to begin with and this one is set in the past. I studied history, particularly Canadian, in university and I am very impressed with the Delany's historical research.

Great story with mystery and intrigue. Wonderful way to learn about Klondike Yukon history as Delany is able to bring thi
Excellent - if nothing else, read this one in the series for a glimpse of one of Fiona's past lives. Angus is growing up, new trouble is in town and the gold rush rushes on. Great historical mystery series and well worth the read - Canadian to boot!

While still containing all of the awesomeness of the first 3 books, the plotline in this one was much more political than I enjoy. That's why only 3 stars.

Wish there were more in this series. Strong women. Interesting men. Good historical details. Light mystery reading. And only one murder instead of the latest style of a murder a chapter.

Another delightful romp through the Klondike with spunky saloon-owner Fiona MacGillivray.
