Shortly after their arrival in Edinburgh, mysterious packages appear and their disturbing contents point to a more sinister death than the highway robbery authorities insist took their parents’ lives. When the siblings’ concerns are waved off as mere hysteria, Lady Elaina takes matters into her own hands and sets off on a secret investigation into the murders.
With the help of her reluctant lady’s maid and two intriguing yet enigmatic men, Lady Elaina uncovers long-buried family secrets that were better left in the dark.
Can Lady Elaina overcome the shocking discoveries which haunt her family’s past? Will she find the one thing she isn’t searching for, love?
Her quest for justice may cost Lady Elaina her only brother, but worse, uncovering the truth behind the lies may cost the lady her life.
