The Irish/Canadian author Donoghue follows up her excellent 2010 novel Room with Frog Music, a historical novel based on an unsolved murder in 19th-century San Francisco. While it's nowhere near as relentlessly tense as Room, Donoghue conjures some fascinating female characters—including a burlesque dancer and a cross-dresser–from the historical record, and her depiction of a smallpox epidemic in racially tense San Francisco is detailed and rich.
