Publisher's Summary

Fans of the Lady Julia Grey Mysteries will love this all-new Lady Anne Addison mystery from Victoria Hamilton....

While in Bath preparing for her upcoming marriage to Lord Darkefell, Lady Anne learns of a profoundly accurate mystic working in town whose uncanny predictions have stunned the gullible and the skeptical alike. Certain there's a harmless rational explanation for the medium's supposed otherworldly abilities, Anne's tolerance turns to defiance when the seer's dark pronouncements begin having a decidedly harmful affect on her friends - and a troubled local vicar takes his own life.

Convinced that the woman is orchestrating a devious scheme, Anne begins to suspect that she's working in league with a shrewd newcomer who's attached himself to many of the town's wealthy widowers. As she navigates the swirling rumors of Bath society to confirm her suspicions and unmask the charlatans for what they are, she discovers that the treacherous conspirators are plotting to make her own future very dark - and very short-lived....

Very Disappointed

I enjoyed the other books by this author but I missed the Marquis. You only hear from him at the very end. Plot is weak and I figured out most of what was going on and who was responsible within several chapters. I have read other books about Victorian homosexuality and the clubs men attended at great personal risk but I just didn't expect it in this book. It truly seemed author was trying too hard to show her support. It just didn't fit. I listened to the audio version and it took me a whole week to finish because I kept falling asleep then I would have to listen all over again.

A little disappointed but still extremely good

I must admit to being a little disappointed as this was very much a Lady Anne mystery and whilst is was extremely good, I did find it sad that her fiancé only popped up in the last chapter. A large part of what makes this series great is the chemistry between the two throughout the books and whilst this was still a very good plot and mystery, I felt it lacked for not having him as part of it.
