Publisher's Summary

The Rosalind Thorne mystery series - inspired by the novels of Jane Austen - continues as the audacious Rosalind strives to aid those in need while navigating the halls of high society.

Rosalind Thorne has slowly but assuredly gained a reputation as "a useful woman" - by helping respectable women out of some less-than-respectable predicaments. Her latest endeavor is a tragedy waiting to happen. Desperate Margaretta Seymore is with child - and her husband is receiving poisoned pen letters that imply that her condition is the result of an affair with the notorious actor Fletcher Cavendish. Margaretta asks Rosalind to find out who is behind the scurrilous letters. But before she can make any progress, Cavendish is found dead, stabbed through the heart. Suddenly, Rosalind is plunged into the middle of one of the most sensational murder trials London has ever seen, and her client's husband is the prime suspect. With the help of charming Bow Street runner Adam Harkness, she must drop the curtain on this fatal drama before more lives are ruined.

    "A mystery most wonderful"

    Everything about this story is excellent. The characters are fully developed and the story completely believable. The murderer is a complete surprise. I love how the author keeps you questioning each fact as they become apparent. The slow involvement of Adam Harkness
    and Devin's continued desire to have her in their life is both frustrating and endearing. Where will it all end? I can hardly wait for the next installment.

    "Good story"

    I don't like how the narrator made Rosalind sound much older than the character is this time around.

    "Wonerful!"

    Kept me in suspense the whole time. Love Darcie Wilde's writing. Had to stay up all night to finish. What a ride. Finally, a suspense writer I can get behind. Can not wait until the next one!!!

    "Love this series"

    I've really grown to love this series and can't wait for the next one. For the most part, the pace is quite nice. The imagery is just right, which is better than Austen sometimes.
