A DANGEROUS LIAISON WITH DETECTIVE LEWIS
The Gentlemen of Scotland Yard return on another daring mission of dark London and darker secrets. Stone is a force, entangling readers in her powerful and well-crafted mystery and allowing the romance and suspense to share equal time. A colorful backdrop, historical details of the industrial era and forensic science merge seamlessly into a fast-paced plot that is filled with surprises and adventure.
When industrialists are found ruthlessly murdered, the Yard sends Detective Rafe Lewis to Edinburgh to protect Fanny Nugent, daughter of one of the victims. Rafe broke Fanny’s heart when he suddenly called off their marriage years ago. Now, he is here to protect her and, as they are drawn into an anarchist’s plot, they face peril and passion together. Fanny also uncovers the surprising truth behind their broken engagement and her father’s death. She is ready and willing to be Rafe’s partner in all ways — once she saves her father’s entry in the London Industrial Exhibition. (POCKET, Sep., 420 pp., $7.99)
