Publisher's Summary

After her foray into murder investigation, Lady Kiera Darby must journey to Edinburgh with her family so that her pregnant sister can be close to proper medical care. But the city is full of many things Kiera isn't quite ready to face: the society ladies keen on judging her, her fellow investigator (and romantic entanglement) Sebastian Gage, and ultimately, another deadly mystery. Kiera's old friend Michael Dalmay is about to be married, but the arrival of his older brother, William, has thrown everything into chaos. For ten years Will has been missing, committed to an insane asylum by his own father. Kiera is sympathetic, especially when rumors swirl about a local girl gone missing. Now Kiera must once again employ her knowledge of the macabre and join forces with Gage in order to prove the innocence of a beloved family friend.

Great second book to a (hopefully) ongoing series

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I was hesitant to start this series based on some negative reviews, but I finally broke down and got the first book. I was pleasantly surprised and have now read the first 3 books. All are good, solid entertaining books.

Better than TV

Anna Lee Huber, surprisingly an American living in the South, writes mystery stories with interesting plots and well drawn characters. I much prefer listening to her novels while I work on crafts than watch television. I would recommend her books to readers who like series books and historical fiction. The narrator does a good job providing a low key performance that nicely reflects the complicated personalities of the characters.
