It began with a simple note: a letter of rejection delivered to Miss Temple on her maid's silver tray. But for Miss Temple, her fiance's cruel rejection will ignite a harrowing quest for truth, plunging her into a mystery as dizzying as a hall of mirrors. Thus begins Gordon Dahlquist's spectacular literary debut, a novel of Victorian suspense that shatters conventions and seethes with danger and eroticism.

If you are looking for a pornographic novel then this might be for you. The story line is confused rather than complex, the descriptions embarrasing and the story development slightly more than a snail's pace. Based on the one good review I was looking forward to an interesting fantasy and was disappointed to discover, even after three separate attempts to listen to the audio, that this is just an awful book with no redeeming value and a lot of offensive descriptions.
