Anne Perryâ€™s new Christmas novel is an irresistible tale of
love, betrayal, greed, murder, and selfless devotion. For
the first time, Perryâ€™s annual yuletide offering is set in
New York Cityâ€”a sparkling young metropolis bursting with
life, promise, and subtle menace.
The year is 1904. Twenty-three-year-old Jemima Pitt, the
daughter of Thomas Pitt, head of Britainâ€™s Special Branch,
is crossing the Atlantic. She is traveling with an
acquaintance, Delphinia Cardew, who is to marry the
aristocratic Brent Albright in a high-society New York
weddingâ€”a grand affair that will join together two
fabulously wealthy families, titans of the international
But Jemima senses a mysterious shadow darkening the
occasion. Missing from the festivities is Delphiniaâ€™s
mother, Maria, who is marked by disgrace. Nearly sixteen
years ago, Maria abandoned young Delphinia and
disappearedâ€”and now the Albrights refuse to mention her
name. But when Harley, the groomâ€™s charismatic brother, asks
Jemima to help him search for Maria and forestall the
scandal that would surely follow if the prodigal parent
turned up at the wedding, she agrees to assist him.
From Hellâ€™s Kitchen to Fifth Avenue, the Lower East Side to
Central Park, Jemima trudges through strange, snowy streets,
asking questions but getting few answersâ€”and never
suspecting that she is walking into mortal danger, from
which not even a handsome young police officer named Patrick
Flannery may be able to protect her.
Once more, Anne Perry delivers a suspenseful, deeply moving
novel that captures the essence of the holiday spirit.
