Product Description

Struggling with romantic entanglements and her stressful rise to prominence on the literary scene, Charlotte Bronte is more alone than ever. While visiting London, Charlotte tours Bedlam and is sure she recognizes Mr. Slade, her long-missing ex-lover, strapped to one of the stretchers. Charlotte starts digging, and soon finds herself trying to reveal a secret that some would kill to protect. It is up to Charlotte to find the truth and expose a plot of global proportion. But what if the conspirators get to her first?

Laura Joh Rowland is the author of fifteen other mysteries, including the critically acclaimed The Secret
Adventures of Charlotte Bronte;
, The Snow Empress, and The Cloud Pavilion. She was educated at the University of Michigan and lives in New York City with her husband and cat.

“Sharply relevant, Rowland’s inventive action-thriller delivers enough intrigue and romance to satisfy a wide array of readers.”--Booklist

“[Rowland] creates a believable Charlotte whose intelligence, stubbornness, and wit recall Jane at every turn. Even more important, the mystery itself is particularly fine.”--Entertainment Weekly

“Rowland simply refuses to let readers lift their eyes from the page.”--Minneapolis Star-Tribune

“This delightful and sophisticated mystery transports readers through an era of Victorian history, with Charlotte Bronte; leading the way... A must read for historical fans.”--Romantic Times
