From New York Times bestselling author, Lauren
Willig, comes this scandalous novel set in the Gilded Age,
full of family secrets, affairs, and even murder.
Annabelle and Bayard Van Duyvil live a charmed life in New
York: he's the scion of an old Knickerbocker family, she
grew up in a Tudor manor in England, they had a whirlwind
romance in London, they have three year old twins on whom
they dote, and he's recreated her family home on the banks
of the Hudson and renamed it Illyria. Yes, there are rumors
that she's having an affair with the architect, but rumors
are rumors and people will gossip. But then Bayard is found
dead with a knife in his chest on the night of their Twelfth
Night Ball, Annabelle goes missing, presumed drowned, and
the papers go mad. Bay's sister, Janie, forms an unlikely
alliance with a reporter to uncover the truth, convinced
that Bay would never have killed his wife, that it must be a
third party, but the more she learns about her brother and
his wife, the more everything she thought she knew about
them starts to unravel. Who were her brother and his wife,
really? And why did her brother die with the name George on
