"A stunning debut novel filled with suspense, intrigue, and plot twists galore. C.S. Harris artfully recreates the contradictory world of Regency England as her marvelous characters move between the glittering ballrooms and the treacherous back alleys of London. Kat and Sebastian lead a cast of memorable characters you will want to meet again and again as they follow the twists and turns of the intricately woven plot to find justice for a young woman who was brutally murdered. Don't start this one in the evening-you'll be up all night! Start this one early in the day-you won't be able to put it down!"
