An action-packed tale of gowns, guys, guns–and the heroines who use them all

Set in turn of the century London, The Friday Society follows the stories of three very intelligent and talented young women, all of whom are assistants to powerful men: Cora, lab assistant; Michiko, Japanese fight assistant; and Nellie, magician''s assistant. The three young women''s lives become inexorably intertwined after a chance meeting at a ball that ends with the discovery of a murdered mystery man.

It''s up to these three, in their own charming but bold way, to solve the murder–and the crimes they believe may be connected to it–without calling too much attention to themselves.

Set in the past but with a modern irreverent flare, this Steampunk whodunit introduces three unforgettable and very ladylike–well, relatively ladylike–heroines poised for more dangerous adventures.
Adrienne Kress studied at the University of Toronto, and at the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Arts. Her time in the UK served as inspiration for her middle-grade books, Alex and the Ironic Gentleman and Timothy and the Dragon''s Gate. Adrienne has since returned to Toronto, where she acts, directs, produces, and writes.
