Young Darcie Finch is desperate - she has found her way to Mrs. Feather's establishment, a brothel in the Whitechapel section of East London. Steppy, a man most dear to her heart, had betrayed her in the worst possible way. The Madame of the brothel was Darcie's sister but when Darcie asked her for help she was turned away. Instead of sanctuary the brothel could have held, rather than the back alleys she'd been living in, Darcie was told to go and seek out a man who owed Mrs. Feather a favor -- Dr. Damien Cole. Along, with the admonishment - "Have a care. Steer clear of his work and his secrets. He is a man to fear."
It was a strange household - the Cole residence - except for Dr. Damien Cole himself. Darcie thought of him as a golden angel when he had rescued her a short distance away from the brothel. As she began to settle in as a maid of all labors, she saw the dark moods that transformed him; heard of servants that disappeared; and saw strange goings on in the middle of the night.
After Damien discovered her artistic talent he offered to let her use her skills to assist him. The attraction that Darcie she had for him quickly ignited into an overwhelming desire where passions overcame any misgivings she had over his secrets. As more bodies started turning up in the Whitechapel area of London, all showing signs of having been surgically mutilated, Darcie felt an evil presence that seemed to be stalking her. Falling more in love with Damian, she began to wonder if she only `imagined' him to be a dedicated scientist, or was he in truth, a blood-thirsty madman?Read more ›
Dr.Cole had many secrets but he was drawn to Darcie and she to him as Darcie searches to know who this man truly is. Darcie is an artist, one whose talent to sketch is recognized and needed by our mysterious Dr.Cole who is secretly dissecting dead bodies to learn the mystery of human organs. He needs Darcie to help draw what he sees, but can Darcie work side by side with him?
The author throws in another catch as a serial killer is stealing the lives of women and is cutting up their bodies, perhaps the work of a doctor they say. Could it be her doctor? Time moves on and all the evidence seems to lead to Dr.Cole as the killer. Darcie is torn between the love that now flows between them and the realization that he could be a cold blooded killer. What is the truth?
This book is very well crafted, characters well defined and the plot well thought out.Read more ›
