What secret lies at the root of the family tree? From the author of Glass Geishas, this is a pause-resistant mystery set in the seductive world of burlesque....Lili Allure, legendary burlesque artiste, has left behind her East End childhood and difficult mother. Busy bathing in giant champagne glasses and designing her own glamorous routines, she hasn't seen her family in years. But when her mother dies, the curtain is raised on Lili's past. Viv's last words were of secrets and mysterious yellow letters - and a Victorian scandal that has cast a shadow over the family for generations.
As Lili hunts for the yellow letters, she begins to see and hear things that can't be real. It almost feels like Viv is haunting her. Is grief making Lili lose her grip on reality? Or are her family secrets more sinister than she ever imagined?
