“Ferguson’s intricate tale, keeps us rooting for Susan. A delight for mystery readers.”
—Elizabeth Levy, The Dorothy Sayers of the Elementary Set
Susan Kessel’s passionate affair with photography landed her a great newspaper job but cost her four celibate years. Setting out to correct this on a Saturday night date, she took a single photo and found herself running for her life, into a Boston that she had never imagined. She discovered the Susan Kessel others saw: the woman four years fighting to establish herself in a man’s profession had made her. Her confrontations with her attackers shocked her. So did the response she provoked among the intriguing men and women of a very sophisticated crowd she was thrown in with—which also pleased her—a hard professionalism had left soft edges in the right places. A bizarre process, she thought: Kessel’s Scared to Death in Boston Diet.
