Sarah and Frank Malloy are enjoying married life and looking to make their family official by adopting Catherine, the child whom Sarah rescued and has been raising as her daughter.

Even though exchanging money for a child is illegal, Frank and Sarah's love for Catherine drives them to comply. When Frank returns with the money and finds Vaughn beaten to death, all evidence points to Frank as the culprit. A not-quite-famous actor with modest means, Vaughn seems an unlikely candidate for murder, particularly such a violent crime of passion. But Frank soon uncovers real-life intrigue as dramatic as any that appears on stage. Sarah and Frank enlist those closest to them to help hunt for Vaughn's killer as Frank's own life--and the future of their family--hang in the balance.

An exciting new book in the series featuring woman-on-the-run Elizabeth Miles--from the beloved national bestselling author of the Gaslight Mysteries. Elizabeth Miles knows that honesty is not always the best policy when it comes to finding justice. Elizabeth has discovered that navigating the rules of high society is the biggest con of all. She knows she can play the game, but so far, her only success is Priscilla Knight, a dedicated young suffragist recently widowed for the second time. Her beloved first husband died in a tragic accident and left her with two young daughters--and a sizable fortune. While she was lost in grief, Priscilla's pastor convinced her she needed a man to look after her and engineered a whirlwind courtship and hasty marriage to fellow parishioner Endicott Knight. Now, about nine months later, Endicott is dead in what appears to be another terrible accident. Everyone is whispering, but that is the least of Priscilla's troubles. She had believed Endicott was wealthy, too, but her banker tells her she has no money left and her house has been mortgaged. He also hints at a terrible scandal and refuses to help. Priscilla stands to lose everything, and Elizabeth is determined not to let that happen. But, as always, Elizabeth walks a fine line between using her unusual talents and revealing her own scandalous past. Elizabeth soon discovers that Endicott's death was anything but accidental, and revealing the truth could threaten much more than Priscilla's finances. To save her new friend's future--and possibly her own--Elizabeth, along with her honest-to-a-fault beau, Gideon, delve into the sinister secrets someone would kill to keep.

Ο υποδιοικητής χαμογέλασε όταν σκέφτηκε την ομοιότητα που ένιωθε ότι υπήρχε ανάμεσα σ’ εκείνον και στον ιχνηλάτη σκύλο».Ο Ρόκκο Σκιαβόνε είχε μανία να παρομοιάζει με ζώο κάθε ανθρώπινη φυσιογνωμία που συναντούσε μπροστά του. Περισσότερο όμως από το σέτερ που προκάλεσε τη σκέψη, ο υποδιοικητής θύμιζε μάλλον κυνηγόσκυλο σπινόνε, δασύτριχο, απεριποίητο και όχι ιδιαίτερα κοινωνικό όπως είναι, πάντα όμως πειθαρχημένο στο ένστικτο του κυνηγού. Ο Σκιαβόνε είναι εριστικός μπάτσος, κάθε άλλο παρά άσπιλος και αμόλυντος, από τη Ρώμη και πιο συγκεκριμένα από το Τραστέβερε, με πληγωμένη ψυχή και αθεράπευτες ενοχές. Στην Αόστα που τον έχουν μεταθέσει, θα προτιμούσε να προφυλάσσει από τη βροχή τα αγαπημένα του Clarks και ν’ απολαμβάνει τις εφήμερες ερωτικές του σχέσεις παρά ν’ αρχίσει άλλη μια έρευνα στις χιονισμένες Άλπεις.Μια γυναίκα, μια σύζυγος που πλησίαζε στο φθινόπωρο της ζωής, βρέθηκε πεθαμένη από την οικιακή βοηθό. Κρεμασμένη από το πολύφωτο ενός δωματίου βυθισμένου στο σκοτάδι. Οι καταστροφές τριγύρω φανερώνουν κλοπή. Ο Ρόκκο δεν πείθεται. Μια σειρά από συμπτώσεις και αποκλίσεις, όπως και το αμφιλεγόμενο πολλών χαρακτήρων, μετατρέπουν σιγά σιγά την εικόνα της ληστείας σε ομιχλώδες τοπίο ανθρώπινου, περιβαλλοντικού και εγκληματικού μυστηρίου.
