To keep her name out of the investigation and to find the murderer, Lucinda hires a fellow Arcane Society member. Caleb Jones runs a psychical investigation agency. A descendant of the founder of the Society, he is very good at protecting its secrets - and frighteningly good getting at the truth. Immediately, Lucinda senses both a raw power and undeniable intensity in the imposing man.
But as a nearly overwhelming desire blooms between Caleb and Lucinda, they are drawn into the dark heart of a deadly conspiracy that can be traced to the early days of the Arcane Society - and to a legacy of madness that could plunge Caleb into the depths of his own tortured soul...

The story is good, the reader is OK but the editing is terrible. When the reading was spliced the new and the old ran together with no break between words and the tone quality was very different. At the end of each chapter there was no pause, in fact, the next chapter number was announced in conjunction with the last word of the previous chapter. The whole effect was startling and detracted from the entire experience.

A good read
Good storytelling! The wrongfully accused psychically gifted botanist needs help from the Arcane Society's psychic investigator to prevent being wrongfully accused of murder by finding her stolen unique fern. Add in their odd romance, the romance between her young cousin with a husband list and his new consultant the enhanced magician, an insane killer, and the usual bad guys who are trying to recreate the founders formula and you have the basis for this very entertaining novel. I bought the hardcover when it first came out, and now the only copy I have is audio.
Anne Flosnik gives a good performance without her unfortunate over dramatic tendencies.
