“Best-selling Quick knows what her readers want, and she delivers it in spades with her latest mesmerizing historical romance. The perfectly realized Victorian setting adds just the right dash of gothic flavor to the story, and the smartly paced plot is filled with enough goose-bump-inducing chills and sexy, romantic thrills to have readers sighing happily with satisfaction. The icing on this irresistible literary confection is Quick’s distinctive sense of wit, which remains just as delicious as ever.”—Booklist (starred review)
“Romantic suspense luminary Quick moves into edgy thriller territory with intelligence and aplomb and uses the backdrop of gaslight-tinted, death-obsessed Victorian London to perfection.

Quick's appealing new direction somehow balances Gothic intensity and lighthearted wit.”—Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

That said, while there were elements of this book I enjoyed, it is a long way from my favorite. The fact that it was the second Amand Quick book in a row I'd read with a scarred hero who uses a walking stick may have contributed to my feeling that this was a rehash of other plot elements done better in other of her books. Not her best work.
This novel deals with Calista Langley, her younger brother she feels responsible for, Trent Hastings and his sister Eudora. The story is convoluted because it is not obvious where the threats, to Calista, are coming from. There are at least 3 villains but which of them, if any, are stalking and threatening Calista and how can she be protected when she insists on being part of every aspect of the investigation. I found it interesting that the men keep trying to protect the women while the women try equally hard to keep the men from danger and try to protect them from emotional pain.
Some reviewers write about the formulaic style of these stories. But I enjoy that because it allows me to become engrossed in the characters and their personalities. Everything Jayne Ann Krentz is permeated with humor and her writing as Amanda Quick is no exception. For me, that is one of the most enjoyable reasons to read her writing.
All in all, it was a highly entertaining and enjoyable ride! I definitely recommend it!
