Description What Alice Knew de Paula Marantz Cohen:

"A marvelously rich and intelligent read, atmospheric, witty, irreverent, and not least a sharply perceptive portrait of those three extraordinary Jameses."
-John Banville, author of "The Infinities"

"Under Certain Circumstances, No One Is More Suited to Solving a Crime than a Woman Confined to Her Bed"

An invalid for most her life, Alice James is quite used to people underestimating her. And she generally doesn't mind. But this time she is not about to let things alone. Yes, her brother Henry may be a famous author, and her other brother William a rising star in the new field of psychology. But when they all find themselves quite unusually involved in the chase for a most vile new murderer-one who goes by the chilling name of Jack the Ripper-Alice is certain of two things:

No one could be more suited to gather evidence about the nature of the killer than her brothers. But if anyone is going to correctly examine the evidence and solve the case, it will have to be up to her.

She is the author of "Jane Austen in Boca, Jane Austen in Scarsdale," and "Much Ado About Jessie Kaplan," and four scholarly works of nonfiction.
