Veronica Speedwell returns in another adventure filled
with secrets and betrayal from Deanna Raybourn, the New
York Times bestselling author of the Lady Julia Grey
Victorian adventuress Veronica Speedwell is whisked off to a
remote island off the tip of Cornwall when her natural
historian colleague Stoker's brother calls in a favor. On
the pretext of wanting a companion to accompany him to Lord
Malcolm Romilly's house party, Tiberius persuades Veronica
to pose as his fiancĂ©e--much to Stoker's chagrin. But upon
arriving, it becomes clear that the party is not as innocent
as it had seemed. Every invited guest has a connection to
Romilly's wife, Rosamund, who disappeared on her wedding day
three years ago, and a dramatic dinner proves she is very
much on her husband's mind.
As spectral figures, ghostly music, and mysterious threats
begin to plague the partygoers, Veronica enlists Stoker's
help to discover the host's true motivations. And as they
investigate, it becomes clear that there are numerous
mysteries surrounding the Romilly estate, and every person
present has a motive to kill Rosamund...
