It is 1898, the London of Sherlock Holmes. Harriet Day worries that her dear friend, artist Alexandra Roberts, is falling under the dangerous influence of a powerful woman, the unpredictable Minerva Atwell. As Harriet looks into Minerva's past, she discovers strange lies. When her friend, the gentle enigmatic actor, George Arden, is forced to flee for his life, she enlists the help of a slightly unwilling Dr Watson. Aided - and sometimes hindered - by a strangely compelling young man by the name of Aleister Crowley, along with his flamboyant lover Jerome Pollitt, they join forces to investigate a dark, complex plot, encompassing ancient myth and brewing occult forces. This is an LGBTQ mystery with a blend of fictional and historical characters.
