WHERE SERPENTS SLEEP
Genre: Mystery/Suspense/Thriller, Mystery, Historical
Harris gives her reluctant hero, Sebastian St. Cyr, the perfect foil in unorthodox feminist Hero. As Sebastian continues to fight his demons, they join forces to solve a horrendous crime, and their coupling is both humorous and fascinating. Harris delivers another spellbinding novel.
In 1812 London, Hero Jarvis, a lord's daughter, witnesses the murder of eight young prostitutes. One of the girls even dies in her arms, prompting Hero to try to find the killer. She enlists the help of her father's archenemy, Sebastian St. Cyr, aka Viscount Devlin.
Sebastian needs something to take his mind off his ex-lover and his estrangement from his father. But in helping Hero, he puts both their lives in danger. As they unearth numerous secrets as well as an assassination plot, time is running out for Sebastian and Hero, and the killer's identity is still a mystery. (OBSIDIAN, Nov., 341 pp., $23.95)
