Waiting on Wednesday {6}: The Friday Society

Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, where we post about much-awaited releases!

Title: The Friday Society
Author: Adrienne Kress
Release Date: December 6th 2012
Publisher: Dial
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.
