Publisher's Summary

July 1831. It's been 15 years since Sebastian Gage has set foot in Langstone Manor. Though he has shared little with his wife, Lady Kiera Darby, about his past, she knows that he planned never to return to the place of so many unhappy childhood memories. But when an urgent letter from his grandfather reaches them in Dublin, Ireland, and begs Gage to visit, Kiera convinces him to go. 

All is not well at Langstone Manor. Gage's grandfather, the Viscount Tavistock, is gravely ill, and Gage's cousin Alfred has suddenly vanished. He wandered out into the moors and never returned. The viscount is convinced someone or something other than the natural hazards of the moors is to blame for Alfred's disappearance. And when Alfred's brother Rory goes missing, Kiera and Gage must concede he may be right. Now, they must face the ghosts of Gage's past, discover the truth behind the local superstitions, and see beyond the tricks being played by their very own eyes to expose what has happened to Gage's family before the moors claim yet another victim....

Critic Reviews

"A missing heir, an estranged family, and a possible poisoner add up to a pretty puzzle for two far-from-disinterested sleuths.... Huber draws on the beauties and dangers of the mysterious moorlands to provide a fitting setting for a knotty mystery filled with envy, greed, and thwarted love.” (Kirkus)

Fun Mystery

I really enjoy this series. Compelling mysteries and likeable characters. I don't love the narrator's voice but I quickly got past that

Love this series.

I have loved every moment of this series and I love it even more as an audiobook. The performance is brilliant and helps to alleviate the tediousness of what can be, in my mind, some unnecessary description (although that was far less prevalent in this book than in others). I always enjoy starting a series from the beginning, but I think you will truly enjoy this one if this is your first introduction to Lady Darby.

Enjoyed the story but Ms Wilds narration has a sing song quality that I
Found distracting.

Narrator is no better than a robot

I could not even stand to listen to the book. I am sure that the story rates higher but the narrator was robotic and bland....Siri from Apple could do a better job.
