Charlotte Holmes comes face to face with her enemy when Moriarty turns to her in his hour of need, in the USA Today bestselling series set in Victorian England.

A most unexpected client shows up at Charlotte Holmes’s doorstep: Moriarty himself. Moriarty fears that tragedy has befallen his daughter and wants Charlotte to find out the truth. 

Charlotte and Mrs. Watson travel to a remote community of occult practitioners where Moriarty’s daughter was last seen, a place full of lies and liars. Meanwhile, Charlotte’s sister Livia tries to make sense of a mysterious message from her beau Mr. Marbleton. And Charlotte’s longtime friend and ally Lord Ingram at last turns his seductive prowess on Charlotte—or is it the other way around?

But the more secrets Charlotte unravels about Miss Moriarty’s disappearance, the more she wonders why Moriarty has entrusted this delicate matter to her of all people. Is it merely to test Charlotte’s skills as an investigator, or has the man of shadows trapped her in a nest of vipers? (publisher)

  1. I read about this somewhere else and thought it sounded good but I haven’t
    read the earlier books so it will have to wait for me.


  2. I’m on the library hold list for this one and am first on the list. My new library has an easy way to do holds and I don’t think a lot of people use it. Anyway, I’m eager to read this new book in a series I love. I agree that readers should read this series in order. Lots of overarching themes and situations, right?


  3. OOH! Liking the cover, I so love a stormy sea … in fact the stormier the better.

    This really does appeal to me but not wanting to really begin any more series yet I’m not sure how well this will read as a standalone novel. Not that it generally bothers me if I don’t begin a series at the beginning etc but then there are some series which work sooo much better if began at the beginning and read in order and, judging by the few reviews I’ve read, this is such a series.
