Betrayed by those she trusted, penniless and alone, Darcie Finch is forced to accept a position that no one else dares, as assistant to dangerously attractive Dr. Damien Cole. Ignoring the whispered warnings and rumours that he's a man to fear, she takes her position at his eerie estate, where she quickly discovers that nothing is at it seems, least of all her handsome and brooding employer. As Darcie struggles with her fierce attraction to Damien, she must also deal with the blood, the disappearances ... and the murders.
With her options dwindling and time running out, Darcie must rely on her instincts as she confronts the man she falling in love with. Is he an innocent and misunderstood man ... or a remorseless killer who prowls the East End streets?

Lush and sublime
Silver writes so beautifully and obviously with much devotion to research, that I sincerely enjoyed falling deep into the atmospheric world she wove in this story. One part history, one part gothic romance with a masterful use of suspense, and all glorious satisfaction. This is the second story of hers I’ve read in as many days, so I believe I’ve found another favorite author. :) I greatly look forward to devouring her entire catalogue! Thank you, Eve Silver, for the truly enjoyable escape during a time that I sorely needed it.
