Description

On a freezing Christmas Eve in 1879, a forensic psychic reader is summoned from her Baker Street lodgings to the scene of a questionable death. Alexandrina Victoria Pendlebury (named after her godmother, the current Queen of England) is adamant that the death in question is a magically compromised murder and not a suicide, as the police had assumed, after the shocking revelation contained by the body in question, Alex must put her personal loss aside to uncover the deeper issues at stake, before more bodies turn up. Turning to some choice allies - the handsome, prescient Lieutenant Brooks, the brilliant, enigmatic Lord Desmond, and her rapscallion cousin James - Alex will have to marshal all of her magical and mental acumen to save Queen and Country from a shadowy threat. Our singular heroine is caught up in this rousing gas lamp adventure of cloaked assassins, meddlesome family, and dark magic. "Murder, mayhem and tea - a well-bred Victorian urban fantasy thriller. Prepare, o reader, to be enthralled." - Patricia Briggs, #1 New York Times Best Selling Author of the Mercy Thompson series.show more
