London, 1813. Sebastian St. Cyr, Viscount Devlin, is no stranger to the dark side of the city, but he's never seen anything like this: the brutalized body of a 15-year-old boy dumped into a makeshift grave on the grounds of an abandoned factory. One of London's many homeless children, Benji Thatcher was abducted and tortured before his murder - and his younger sister is still missing. Few in authority care about a street urchin's fate, but Sebastian refuses to let this killer go unpunished. Uncovering a disturbing pattern of missing children, Sebastian is drawn into a shadowy, sadistic world. As he follows a grim trail that leads from the writings of the debauched Marquis de Sade to the city's most notorious brothels, he comes to a horrifying realization: Someone from society's upper echelon is preying upon the city's most vulnerable. And though dark, powerful forces are moving against him, Sebastian will risk his reputation and his life to keep more innocents from harm....

Best in the series
While I have enjoyed the entire St. Cyr series, this book is the best! Ms Harris does an amazing job of showing many sides of her complex characters, St. Cyr is the concerned and loving husband, father, and uncle, and also the relentless, angry, bull-headed detective trying to find who is torturing and murdering the most vulnerable of London's poor. Hero's interviews with the poor orphans is a fine way of building sympathy for the plight of the abandoned children, and it makes the rest of the mystery even more believable and sad., And we gain more insights into Hendon's feelings about St. Cyr.
Don't start here - you really need all the carefully built background from the previous books to appreciate this one, but don't miss Where The Dead Lie. Masterful storytelling!
I think Hero's mother was poisoned by the fair of appearance, but evil evil beneath the surface. new cousin, who will also be found guilty of her husbands' murders. Just sayin'.

Great series with my favorite Narrator
What does Davina Porter bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
Davina Porter has such a talent for voices and accents. She can bring the characters to life.
