Meet Augusta McKee, singer/professor/stage director, fifty-ish, single, independent, ahead of her time, living in Cincinnati in the 1960s. Here’s what the readers are saying about her:

 

“Professor Augusta McKee, just introduced in Susan Moore Jordan’s mystery The Case of the Slain Soprano, will take her place among the lady detectives you wish you knew in person. She’s a no-nonsense voice teacher in spike heels, tough and tender and smart as all get-out …. I have loved the famous lady sleuths of fiction: P.D. James’s Cordelia Gray, Elizabeth George’s Barbara Havers, Sue Grafton’s Kinsey Millhone, Agatha Christie’s Miss Marple, and Alexander McCall Smith’s Precious Ramotswe. Augusta McKee now joins that list, and I look forward to her further adventures.” –Michaele

 

“McKee makes a strong protagonist and I liked her instantly as she asserts herself in defiance of the detective, who seems a bit overwhelmed by her, but later regains his composure sufficiently to woo her …. I appreciate the strong character [the author] has built in Augusta McKee and I hope Jordan will choose to continue the McKee character in future books.” –Pocopop

 

“This is [Jordan’s] first venture into the cozy mystery, and she's hit a home run! Augusta McKee, her heroine, is well-drawn for us and we are soon thoroughly intrigued by this well-dressed and extremely well-shod woman in midlife with many roles - professor of music, voice teacher, stage play director, and supportive mentor to faculty and students.” –Catherine
