Review: FOR DEAD MEN ONLY by Paula Paul

This fourth in the Alexandra Gladstone mysteries sees Dr. Gladstone pitting herself and her knowledge and training once again in opposition to patriarchal, insular, small-town society. Often we forget that women have only been an Integral component of the workforce for three-quarters of a century. In the late 19th century in rural England, Dr. Gladstone cannot term herself a physician, cannot use the honorific "Doctor," cannot perform autopsies! Nevertheless, she is a talented investigator, very much needed when the local Freemasons begin to fall prey, their deaths unexplained, and a mysterious figure appearing to be a Templar is seen on horseback.
