All the Perils of This Night

(2020)
A novel by

 
 
When young Katherine vanishes without a trace while visiting relatives in London, her godmother's strange, often terrifying dreams may be the only clues that can save her. Katherine has been abducted and forced into sexual slavery in a highly exclusive gentleman's club whose powerful members will stop at nothing to protect their sometimes lethal secrets. 

 

In their increasingly perilous quest to find her, all the adults in Katherine's life must confront the secrets they keep, even-or especially-from themselves. Keeper of the most terrible of all, Katherine finds a lifeline in her voice, singing psalms and Lady Soul with equal virtuosity and passion.

 

From the racial tensions of 1960s America to the seamy underbelly of London, All the Perils of This Night offers a vivid flashback of a tumultuous era and a window into a surprising and magical reality. With a Dickensian mastery of character and plot, Cunningham sounds timeless and timely themes-innocence and loss, guilt and redemption, slavery and liberation, and love across racial and gender boundaries. Best known for her award-winning series The Maeve Chronicles, Cunningham outdoes herself with All the Perils of this Night, deftly combining psychological complexity, humor, mysticism, and social realism in this riveting thriller.

Genre: Mystery

Praise for this book

"A smart and twisted literary thriller, one of the best of the year. I dare you to read the first few pages and then try to put this book down!" - Steve Hamilton

"Elizabeth Cunningham has done something rare and special in mystery writing. Mysteries fall into several sub-genres, such as 'locked-room,' or 'international thriller,' or 'courtroom suspense.' Some writers will switch sub-genres in different books. But this is the first time I've ever seen a writer move the same cast of characters to a radically different kind of setting and story. Elizabeth Cunningham has taken the small town cast from Murder At The Rummage Sale, and brought them to a story that is not only on a much larger stage--London in the 1960's, but also to a world that is far darker, more disturbing, with a young woman's life and soul in the balance. Remarkable book." - Rachel Pollack
