Rosalind Thorne has slowly but assuredly gained a reputation as "a useful woman" - by helping respectable women out of some less-than-respectable predicaments. Her latest endeavor is a tragedy waiting to happen. Desperate Margaretta Seymore is with child - and her husband is receiving poisoned pen letters that imply that her condition is the result of an affair with the notorious actor Fletcher Cavendish. Margaretta asks Rosalind to find out who is behind the scurrilous letters. But before she can make any progress, Cavendish is found dead, stabbed through the heart. Suddenly, Rosalind is plunged into the middle of one of the most sensational murder trials London has ever seen, and her client's husband is the prime suspect. With the help of charming Bow Street runner Adam Harkness, she must drop the curtain on this fatal drama before more lives are ruined.

A mystery most wonderful
Everything about this story is excellent. The characters are fully developed and the story completely believable. The murderer is a complete surprise. I love how the author keeps you questioning each fact as they become apparent. The slow involvement of Adam Harkness
and Devin's continued desire to have her in their life is both frustrating and endearing. Where will it all end? I can hardly wait for the next installment.

Kept me in suspense the whole time. Love Darcie Wilde's writing. Had to stay up all night to finish. What a ride. Finally, a suspense writer I can get behind. Can not wait until the next one!!!
