Cara Devon, a young woman with a troubled and violent history, recently returned to 1860s London to deal with the estate of her recently murdered father, a loss she does not mourn. She’s been away for years, exploring the wide world with a freedom seldom afforded proper young women, and her return has the town talking again about the scandal surrounding her.
When other young women start disappearing and turning up dead, Cara ends up in the middle of an investigation that may tie up the loose threads of her past and her future, if only she can find the artifact known as Nefertiti’s Heart.
The novel intermixes romance and thriller in a steampunk setting. Cara is a very promising character and I expect to enjoy the other novels in the series as well.
