When McKinley's death is blamed on foreign-born anarchists, Hilda Johansson, a recent immigrant, is concerned that fellow immigrants might be swept up in a wave of xenophobia.

Hilda Johansson is a maid in the Studebaker mansion in South Bend, Indiana in the year 1901. Of national interest, this is the year President McKinley will be assassinated. On a more personal level, Hilda will become involved in yet another murder, trying to save an innocent man from being convicted of murder and executed. Author Jeanne M. Dams does an excellent job of drawing us into the private lives of the working class as they serve their wealthy and sometimes haughty employers. In this second installment of this well-written series, Hilda must first decide who is the guilty murderer, and who is, perhaps, guilty of a lesser crime. The mix of mystery into a historical setting with its intricate plot and engaging characters is both entertaining and enjoyable. ( )
