Francesca Cahill by Brenda Joyce
Francesca Cahill is the protagonist in a series of historical romance/romantic suspense novels by American author Brenda Joyce. Set in 1902 New York, Heiress/sleuth Francesca Cahill is engaged to one of the city’s most well-known millionaire bachelors, Calder Hart. But Francesca is far more interested in solving ghastly crimes than in taking tea. Her pursuit of thugs, madmen and murderers takes her from the glittering salons of Fifth Avenue into the dangerous, crime-ridden underbelly of Lower Manhattan. And more often than not, the city’s powerful Police Commissioner, Rick Bragg, is at her side, because first love never really dies. The series is also known as the Deadly series.
