This book was recently pulled from the Global Reading Challenge because it has the word "prostitute" in it. Sigh. So that prompted me to read it and, boy, are the GRC kids missing out if they don't read it despite it being pulled from the competition. It's a great mystery with excellent characters and lots of fun historical detail.

I didn't even notice the word "prostitute" and I was listening for it (I downloaded the audio book narrated by Katherine Kellgren--she's the best!). Enola specifically says "lady of the night" a few times and then admits she's not sure what the phrase even means. There are some scary parts, but nothing gruesome. I'd recommend it highly to mystery fans. First in a series.
