Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"A richly textured and timeless novel of suspense. Her Victorian England pulsates with life and is peopled with wonderfully memorable characters."

Faye Kellerman

Although esteemed General Thaddeus Carlyon meets his death in a freak accident at home, his beautiful wife, Alexandra, confesses that she killed him. Investigator William Monk, nurse Hester Latterly, and the brilliant Oliver Rathbone, counsel for the defense, work feverishly to break down the wall of silence raised by the accused and her husband's proud family. With the trial only days away, they inch toward the dark and appalling heart of the mystery. The final act is a courtroom masterpiece, through which we dare not breathe too deeply, lest the precarious balance of a woman's life be lost.

Synopsis:

When General Thaddeus Carlyon meets his death at a London dinner party, his wife confesses that she is the murderer, and Investigator William Monk, nurse Hester Latterly, and Oliver Rathbone work feverishly to prove her innocence. Reprint.
