Waterstones Says

Boasting a formidable amateur sleuth in Molly the maid, Prose’s captivating whodunit is a page-turning tour around the Regency Grand Hotel in search of a cold-blooded killer.

I am your maid. I know so much about you. But what do you know about me?

Molly the Maid is all alone in the world. A nobody. She's used to being invisible in her job at the Regency Grand Hotel, plumping pillows and wiping away the grime, dust and secrets of the guests who pass through. She's just a maid - why should anyone take notice?

But Molly is thrown into the spotlight when she discovers an infamous guest, Mr Black, very dead in his bed. This isn't a mess that can be easily cleaned up. And so Molly becomes embroiled in a hunt for the truth, learning who to trust as she navigates the secret underbelly of the Regency Grand Hotel.

Escapist, charming, and introducing a truly original heroine, The Maid is a story about how everyone deserves to be seen, and how the truth isn't always black and white - it's often found in the dirtier, grey areas in between...
