NO CURE FOR THE DEAD by Christine Trent

A new series and a new author for me. I will read her again. An historical mystery woven around Florence Nightingale. England was preparing for war with the Russia.  It is very well done as of the characters were depicted, correctly. I noted editing errors.

Florence has accepted the position as Superintendent of the Establishment for Gentlewomen, during a temporary Illness in London. Florence has had to fight to received the job. Prevailing theory was it was not a job for a person Florence standing in the social scheme. The profession of nursing ranked slightly above that of a prostitute. Shortly after taking the position she finds one of nurses hanging in the library. The police feel it is a suicide and refuse to investigate. Florence does not agree as the medical are interpreted incorrectly. She as she exploded the death Florence uncovered several secrets. She has to fight both the staff and members of board of directors. Florence must find an answer to the mystery in order to make the reforms she wants. Will she succeed? I recommend this book.
