Reviews

Shocked when her boss and mentor at Fleming's Academy of the Occult is murdered and she barely escapes the lethal Bone Man, psychically gifted Beatrice Lockwood disappears and reemerges as an agent for the private inquiry firm Flint & Marsh as one of the intrepid, enigmatic Ladies of Lantern Street. But Beatrice is not quite as well hidden as she would like to be. When Beatrice is spotted at a ball by master sleuth Joshua Gage, who suspects her of blackmailing his sister, and he comes to Beatrice's aid during an attempted kidnapping, the two are thrown together in a bizarre, dangerous adventure with some unexpected twists. VERDICT A smart, self-sufficient heroine who can "see" people's footprints and a tenacious, wounded hero with an uncanny ability to find whatever he seeks struggle against the incendiary attraction that flares between them as they work to uncover the truth, deal with a crazed scientist, unmask a villain (or two), and stay alive in the process. A clever, fast-paced romp from the ever-creative Quick (Crystal Gardens), who lives in Seattle. (c) Copyright 2013. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
