Summary
San Francisco, 1876, is having a heatwave to break all records and there is an outbreak of smallpox as well. Jenny is shot dead in a railway station, but her friend Blanche survives. Blanche vows to do everything she can to find Jenny's killer. As she searches, she finds out that Jenny had a secret life: that she was a notorious law-breaker and charmer, a free-love bohemian who mixed in with a dangerous crowd. As Blanche pieces the story together, Jenny's murderer may be coming after her next
Summary
"Emma Donoghue's explosive new novel, based on an unsolved murder in 1876 San Francisco. Summer of 1876: San Francisco is in the fierce grip of a record-breaking heatwave and a smallpox epidemic. Through the window of a railroad saloon, a young woman called Jenny Bonnet is shot dead. The survivor, her friend Blanche Beunon, is a French burlesque dancer. Over the next three days, she will risk everything to bring Jenny's murderer to justice--if he doesn't track her down first. The story Blanche struggles to piece together is one of free-love bohemians, desperate paupers and arrogant millionaires; of jealous men, icy women and damaged children. It's the secret life of Jenny herself, a notorious character who breaks the law every morning by getting dressed: a charmer as slippery as the frogs she hunts. In thrilling, cinematic style, FROG MUSIC digs up a long-forgotten, never-solved crime. Full of songs that migrated across the world, Emma Donoghue's lyrical tale of love and bloodshed among lowlifes captures the pulse of a boomtown like no other"--
