Praise

“A compelling story that will take readers from the dreary streets of Portland to the upscale parlors of Brahmin Boston. A fine historical mystery.” —Booklist

“The plot is awash in mysterious circumstances and suggestions of the occult…a rich and multi-layered adventure told with skill and attention to detail.” BookPage

“[Shields] serves up a highly readable novel that is guaranteed to engage readers until the very last page.” Tucson Citizen

“Erudite, mysterious and exciting, with a brooding, brilliant Sherlock-ian detective. The denouement is just as surprising as in [The Truth of All Things].” —Kirkus (starred review) 

“A well-executed addition to this genre, and a detective duo worth following into the next book in the series.” —Historical Novel Society
