Lady Trent must rely on her newfound faith to solve the mystery . . . and save herself.

In London, 1858, women of British nobility are being murdered with alarming frequency, so Scotland Yard calls on Lady Serafina Trent and her crime-solving partner, Dylan Tremayne, to help piece together the perplexing clues. With Dylan's help, Serafina has garnered acclaim as a brilliant detective—solving mysteries by relying on her astute observation and scientific reasoning.

But in the midst of solving these crimes, Serafina's relationship with Dylan meets unexpected stress when his childhood sweetheart returns. Torn between desire and decorum, Serafina desperately wants Dylan to be happy—but in the arms of another woman?

After a lifetime of viewing the world through a practical lens, Serafina begins to examine her own soul--and realizes her need for Jesus. Yet will her faith save her life when all clues point to Serafina as the murderer's next victim?

    Fantastic and a good read and great finish to the trilogy

    I started reading his first story of this series. I love the characters, the way they grow. The whodunit was easy to figure out with this story than the first two. The characters were good. I love the trilogy. You need to read the first two to appreciate this one.
    This story is a bit "pushed". I think some of the characters were pushed somewhat out of their storyline. It wasn't as mysterious as the earlier stories and the plot was very see-through from the beginning. It is still an enjoyable read. I liked the ending. The author assumed a lot during the writing which is sad. It was like he had a lot to explain and took shortcuts. His previous writings are far better. I do not know if this is the end or these characters. In many ways, I hope not. Yet, if this story and its lesser plot and the push to make things religiously/romantically/politically RIGHT were to continue in the next installment - I would want the story to end here. Normally, I avoid religious based stories. This story makes it a part of the character's personality.
