The New York Times bestselling author of
Otherwise Engaged and The Mystery Woman
presents an all-new novel of intrigue and murder set
against the backdrop of Victorian Londonâ€¦
The Kern Secretarial Agency provides reliable professional
services to its wealthy clientele, and Anne Clifton was one
of the finest women in Ursula Kernâ€™s employ. But Miss
Clifton has met an untimely endâ€”and Ursula is convinced it
was not due to natural causes.
Archaeologist and adventurer Slater Roxton thinks Mrs. Kern
is off her head to meddle in such dangerous business.
Nevertheless, he seems sensible enough to Ursula, though
she does find herself unnerved by his self-possession and
unreadable green-gold eyesâ€¦
If this mysterious widowed beauty insists on stirring the
pot, Slater intends to remain close by as they venture into
the dark side of polite society. Together they must reveal
the identity of a killerâ€”and to achieve their goal they may
need to reveal their deepest secrets to each other as wellâ€¦
