Publisher's Summary

It is every mama's dearest wish that her daughter marries well. But how to ensure that a seemingly earnest suitor is not merely a fortune hunter? Rosalind is involved in just such a case, discreetly investigating a client's prospective son-in-law, when she is drawn into another predicament shockingly close to home.

Rosalind's estranged father, Sir Reginald Thorne-a drunkard and forger-has fallen into the hands of the vicious scoundrel Russell Fullerton. Angered by her interference in his blackmail schemes, Fullerton intends to unleash Sir Reginald on society and ruin Rosalind. Before Rosalind's enemy can act, Sir Reginald is found murdered - and Fullerton is arrested for the crime. He protests his innocence, and Rosalind reluctantly agrees to uncover the truth, suspecting that this mystery may be linked to her other, ongoing cases.

Aided by her sister, Charlotte, and sundry friends and associates - including handsome Bow Street Runner Adam Harkness - Rosalind sets to work. But with political espionage and Napoleon loyalists in the mix, there may be more sinister motives, and far higher stakes, than she ever imagined....

Marvelous, as always

I have loved every book in this series and Pearl Hewitt is an absolute joy to listen to. The storyline has more twists than a bowl of noodles with well developed characters. Bravo Ms. Wilde, you've done it again!

Excellent Series

It makes no difference whether you figure out “who done it” early on or at the very end. These books are so well written and well read, the end always comes too soon.

This one seems like it could be the finale. I hope not.

Another excellent book

It seems like about this point in a series, many authors start to stumble and their plots begin to sound strained. Not this time -- the book has hardly begun before Rosalind is thoroughly embroiled in another adventure that threatens to knock her from her already precarious social position. Just as she's attempting to help disentangle her client's daughter from a roguish suitor -- provided the daughter actually wants to be disentangled, and that becomes a pertinent question -- in strolls the villainous blackmailer Russell Fullerton with Rosalind's beastly father in tow. But when Sir Reginald is found murdered in Fullerton's parlor, landing Fullerton in prison, the blackmailer summons Rosalind to uncover the real killer. Rosalind reluctantly sets forth, with the aid of her sister and Adam Harkness, Bow Street Runner -- straight into an international plot.

More Rosalind Thorne!

I loved everything about this book. The mystery, the narration and the progressive development of the main characters. The story took many twists and turns, so many surprises. More on Fullerton and Alice Littlefield. Rosalind's sister and father. Wonderful. Looking forward for more.

Well written and narrated!

These stories of life and behaviors in the late 1700's, I believe, are fascinating. Often time bordering on the rediculious compared to the behaviors of today. The insite and determination of young women on their own then have traveled through time riveling those who struggle today. The narrator was perfect! I've enjoyed the entire series so far.
