Description

The "sexy . . . breathtaking . . . wonderfully original" mystery in which a murderer returns from the dead-and is hell-bent on killing again (Jane Feather, New York Times-bestselling author of An Unsuitable Bride). A stridently independent woman in sixteenth-century London, Clio Thornton's interest in solving mysteries has put her at odds with her wealthy family. But given her coterie of unorthodox friends-and her pet monkey, Toast-that is nothing new. So, when she stumbles upon a grisly murder, she's determined to investigate, even when all of her discoveries point to an impossible killer: the Vampire of London, vanquished three years ago by Viscount Miles Loredan-her cousin's husband-to-be. Miles finds her theories impossible to believe. But intrigued by her passion and her beauty, Miles agrees to hire her and support her investigation. What starts as a professional relationship soon becomes personal-and dangerous. Not only because Miles is betrothed to another woman-but because Clio has become the Vampire's next target . . . For lovers of puzzling mysteries, romantic histories, or just good old-fashioned sleuthing, this is a fast, fun read from "a writer to watch" (Publishers Weekly).
