Publisher's Summary

The New York Times best-selling author of Dead End Street returns with Nell Pratt discovering one of Philadelphia's darker buried secrets....

When a summer intern at the Preservation Society discovers an aged document hidden in the binding of an antique book, Society President Nell Pratt is intrigued by the possibilities: Is it a valuable historic document or just a useless scrap of paper? When analysis reveals that it's a hand-drawn map of one of Philadelphia's oldest neighborhoods, Nell learns that the area is being excavated for a new real-estate development and may hold long-buried secrets from the city's historic heyday.

Determined to get to the bottom of the map's origin and what it might tell her about the mysterious plot of land, Nell will have to contend with a construction company owner who disappears, a former Society board member who's harbored a dark secret her entire life, and a remarkable discovery that may have the dead turning over in their graves....

Not my cup of tea this time.

But, I have really enjoyed the previous books in this series. As usual, the narrator is great.

Don’t buy it

Came across this book and was excited to read it. Until I started listening to the audible. The writing was poor, the story had key portions that were completely unbelievable, and then there was a thrown together ending that left me confused and angry that the key points were not resolved. Maybe she plans a 9th book that will continue the story, I don’t know as this is the first book of hers that I’ve read. This book didn’t seem to carry on the previous book however. There were some great historical events that are based on fact, but the added events were totally unbelievable which made the true history appear to be fiction. Seriously, a house that was built over 200 years ago and has been vacant for decades with no one discovering what is in the crawl space? A contractor who is not concerned with the derelict buildings across the street from his condominium/apartment building project? The list goes on...

Pretty dull.

I fell asleep over and over while trying to listen to this book. I think I’ll return it.

Great historical mystery!

Well narrated, this story holds your attention to the last syllable and leaves you wanting more.
