Publisher's Summary

Calista Langley operates an exclusive 'introduction' agency in Victorian London, catering to respectable ladies and gentlemen who find themselves alone in the world. But now a dangerously obsessed individual has begun sending her trinkets and gifts suitable only for those in deepest mourning.

Desperate for help, Calista turns to Trent Hastings, a reclusive author of popular crime novels. It becomes clear that the danger may be coming from Calista's own secret past.

Critic Reviews

"Quick’s ambitious Victorian historical mixes witty, occasionally self-referential banter with gothic undertones and a solid thriller plot." (Publishers Weekly)
"The icing on this irresistible literary confection is Quick's distinctive sense of wit, which remains just as delicious as ever." (Booklist)

Not an Amanda Quick typical

Good story line
Big disappointment in plot. Did not follow typical paranormal plot
I think this was mixed up with another manuscript
Hopefully Jayne will return to her AQ path. I am hoping. Alchemy, dust bunnies anywhere but just mush
