Cracow, 1893. Socialite Zofia Turboty?ska, a professor's wife, has little to do at home but plan a charity auction, arranged by the wealthy residents of a nursing home and the nuns who work there. But when one of those residents is found dead, Zofia finds her true calling: solving mysteries. Ridiculed by the police, she starts her own murder investigation, unbeknownst to anyone but her loyal cook Franciszka and one reluctant nun. With her husband blissfully unaware of her secret, Zofia remakes herself into Cracow's greatest, most surprising amateur detective.

"[An] exceptional debut and series launch…. The translation showcases the novel's deliciously ironic voice. Fans who like colorful locales and tongue-in-cheek mysteries will eagerly await Zofia's next outing."—Publishers Weekly
