"If one enjoys a great mystery with a touch of romance, there are few better than this!" --InD'Tale magazine
When Sybil takes the stage again, murder plays the leading role. In September 1873, actress and spirit medium Sybil Ingram is eagerly anticipating her marriage to dashing violinist Roderick Brooke. But the wedding plans are halted by Roderick's former lover, Julia de Lioncourt, who implores him to come to Paris to rescue her from a blackmailer.
Knowing how guilty Roderick still feels for killing Julia's husband in a duel, Sybil agrees to help Julia for his sake—even though it means becoming her understudy in a French melodrama. Worse, it's all too clear that the scheming diva wants Roderick back in her bed. When the blackmailer is found dead, can Sybil's abilities as a medium help her discover the truth before the killer stops her?
A delicious blend of historical cozy, supernatural mystery, gothic romance, and romantic comedy, the Sybil Ingram Victorian mysteries are perfect for readers who love dynamic Victorian women sleuths like Anna Lee Huber's Lady Darby, Penny Richards's Lilly Long, Deanna Raybourn's Lady Julia Grey, and Elizabeth Peters' Amelia Peabody. And be sure not to miss Sybil's other adventures: Nocturne for a Widow, A Haunting Reprise, and the short story "Christmas at Gravesend"!
