Jane Prescott, the protagonist of A Death of No Importance in Mariah Fredericks’ novel, introduces herself to readers as a “Nobody. Less than nobody.” As a lady’s maid in the first decade of the 20th century, she’s not too far off. Regardless of her station in life, though, Jane has a keen eye. Once again, in her own words, “If it is your job to make sure the silver is clean, you must have a sharp eye for tarnish.” Turns out, tarnish—on characters perceived as sterling—is plentiful
