Publisher's Summary

In December 1923, Esther Todd was a lovely young pianist and a rising star. One month later, she was on the Most Wanted List. She vanished from the snowy streets of Harlem, while thieves hit the home of her society patron, pulling off a million-dollar heist. Were the disappearance and the robbery a coincidence or a conspiracy? Somebody knew, but nobody was talking.

Three years later, the mystery remained unsolved. As a crime reporter, Lanie Price covered the initial case. Now a frustrated society columnist, she's ready for a change. It comes in the form of Esther's sister, Ruth, who, desperate for closure, begs Lanie to dedicate her Christmas column to the case. Maybe someone, somewhere will remember something. Seeking fresh material, Lanie starts asking hard questions, dangerous questions, the kind just about guaranteed to get her killed...

Good Mystery, If You Like Historical Fiction

What did you love best about Darkness and the Devil Behind Me?

I got a free code for this in exchange for an honest review.The story was pretty good, but predictable at times. The performance was good, too, but it seemed to get better as the story went on. The first part was jerky, but I'm glad I kept listening. By chapter 2 rolled well.

Which character – as performed by Marti Dumas – was your favorite?

For some reason I like Mrs. Goodfellow, although the reader had a lot of good voices.
