From New York Times bestselling author Tasha Alexander comes the second Lady Emily mystery set in Victorian England, meticulously researched and with a twisty plot that involves an audacious cat burglar and a brewing scandal for Lady Emily . . .

London's social season is in full swing, and the aristocracy can't stop whispering about a certain gentleman who claims to be the direct descendant of Louis XVI and Marie Antoinette. Drawing rooms, boudoirs and ballrooms are also abuzz with the latest news of an audacious cat burglar who has been making off with precious items that once belonged to the ill-fated queen.

But light gossip turns serious when the owner of one of the pilfered treasures is murdered and the thief develops a twisted obsession with Lady Emily Ashton. It takes all of Lady Emily's wit and perseverance to unmask her stalker and ferret out the murderer, all while faced with a brewing scandal that threatens both her reputation and her romance with the dashing Colin Hargreaves.
