Artemis Hunt is a handsome gentleman who is also a master of secret arts. His concentration on his own affairs is shattered, however, when Madeline demands his help one fog-shrouded night.

"Madeline Deveridge may have murdered her husband, Renwick, and now his ghost is seeking to take revenge on her. Only a master of the secret society of Vanza can help her, and Dream Merchant Artemis Hunt is the only one available. A lusty romance involving a widow must have a certain amount of plunging and thrusting, but the listener might wonder how Barbara Rosenblat can read these scenes without giggling. Madeline is a tad breathy in the beginning of the novel, though, as her backbone stiffens, so does her dialogue. Artemis "hmmms" rather a lot, like Emerson in Elizabeth Peters's novels, but Rosenblat carries the listener through Vanza's mazes and foggy back alleys with her usual aplomb. B.H.B.
