Description

From the author of the acclaimed Liu Du novels comes an atmospheric new mystery series set as England teeters on the edge of the scientific revolution. London, 1703. Cecily Kay's passion for plants has brought her to the home of Sir Barnaby Mayne, owner of one of the greatest collections in England. The curious-minded vie for invitations to see the dried flowers, stones, bones, and artifacts that fill his shelves . . . and others come with a darker purpose. When her host is stabbed to death while leading a tour of his collection, Cecily is unconvinced by the killer's confession. Years of practice identifying plants have taught Cecily that the smallest particulars can distinguish a harmless leaf from a deadly one. She pays attention, and she doesn't like inconsistencies. At the heart of the Mayne collection is a locked case that hides a deadly secret. To uncover it, Cecily will have to enter the world of the collectors without being consumed. If she fails, she could join the ranks of bones that wait, silent and still, in the cabinets of Barnaby Mayne.
