Publisher's Summary

Solving the infamous Chopper case has helped crime scene physician Dr. Eliza Jekyll establish her fledgling career in the chauvinistic world of Victorian law enforcement. But the scrutiny that comes with her newfound fame is unwelcome for a woman with a diabolical secret. And there is the mercurial Royal Society agent and wolf man Remy Lafayette. Does he want to marry her, eat her, or burn her at the stake? Though Eliza is uncertain about Remy, her dark and jealous shadow self, Lizzie, wants to steal the magnetic and persistent agent and usurp Eliza's life.

It's impossible to push Remy away when he tempts her with the one thing she can't resist: a bizarre crime. The search for a bloodthirsty ritual torturer dubbed the Pentacle Killer draws them into a terrifying world of spies, art thieves, and evil alchemy, where the price of immortality is madness - or damnation - and only Lizzie's dark ingenuity can help Eliza survive.

Not my cuppa

This is the second book in a series, but it was not the fact that I had not read the first one that made this audio book difficult to finish. I felt that the plot dragged on and on. I love a good mystery, but this was not it for me. About 3/4 of the way in I almost abandoned ship, but I was marginally interested in the hero of the story so I stuck it out. I enjoyed the ending, but it took forever to get there! And I prefer my romance to not be G-rated, so a tad disappointed about that. I am not a fan of the third wheel trop, so that was a huge negative for me (this was a carry over romance from book 1). It was not the worst book I have ever read, nor the worst I have listened to. I did manage to finish in about 3 weeks when I can usually finish an audio recording in two days.

That being said, I enjoyed the narrator quite a lot.
