Narrator (if applicable): n/a

Release date (if applicable):  Published

Synopsis: In 1929 Paris,  Phillipa Crosby, a 22 year old, Boston heiress, disappears. Harris is brought in to find her and bring her home. Thing is...Phillipa was last seen in a theater that focuses on the "darker things", such as murder, sexual perversion and insanity. 

Has Phillipa become a victim of this world? Can Harris make it out with his sanity and his life? 
My rating: 4 Stars
My opinion: LOVED this book. A lover of Mary R. King's Mary/Sherlock series, I was unaware of this historical fiction mystery series. That will be a mistake that is quickly corrected.

I love how Ms. King is able to take the reader right back to the period of time with an authenticity accomplished through a clear research of the period, including real people of the time. Furthermore, her character development allows readers to "get into the heads" of the characters. She is masterful in accomplishing this in this book.

No matter the period that Ms. King writes in, her books are intelligent, fun and witty!

Stand Alone or Part of a Series: Part of Series
