Overview

San Francisco, 1876: a stifling heat wave and a smallpox epidemic have engulfed the city. Deep in the streets of Chinatown live three former stars of the Parisian circus: Blanche, now an exotic dancer at the House of Mirrors, her love, Arthur, and his companion Ernest. When an eccentric outsider joins their little circle, secrets unravel, changing everything-and leaving one of them dead.

Frog Music, inspired by true events, is an evocative novel of intrigue and murder; elegant, erotic and witty.
