The year is 1873 and society has no room for deaf Edward Rollin. He comes from good breeding, and has wealth and charm in spades- but it's not enough to hide his disability and peculiarities. Edward is a man uninterested in courting or participating in societal events with his peers, instead choosing to spend his days researching the string of bizarre deaths that have rattled London.
Edward is not alone in his hunt for the truth, either. Ambrose Walsh and Abigail Hunt each have vested interests in getting answers as well. Their search is in part to avenge the death of Abigail's father, but also to save society from a fast growing plague.
As Edward and his friends hit more dead ends in their investigation, he decides to try a new method of searching. This brings him closer to a cure, but far closer to danger.
Told through both Edward’s letters and third person, Of Secrets and Sound is the long awaited sequel to Of Secrets, Letters, and Lions.
