Editor Reviews
From the Back Cover Budding illusionist Anna Van Housen is on top of the world. After scoring a spot on a prestigious European vaudeville tour, she's moving to London to chase her dream and to join the Society for Psychical Research, an underground group for Sensitives, people like her with psychic abilities. Along with her handsome beau, Cole Archer, Anna is prepared to take the city by storm. But when Anna arrives in London, she finds the Society in turmoil. Sensitives are disappearing, and without a suspect, the group's members are turning on one another. Could the kidnapper be someone within the Society itself--or has the nefarious Dr. Boyle followed them to London? As secrets about the Society are revealed and Cole and Anna begin to unravel the case, they find themselves at odds, their plans for romance in London having vanished. With her life in danger and her relationship fizzling, can Anna find a way to track down the kidnapper before he makes her his next victim--or will she have to pay the ultimate price for her powers? Set in Jazz Age London, this alluring sequel to Born of Illusion comes alive with sparkling romance, deadly intrigue, and daring magic.
