Calista Langley operates an exclusive "introduction" agency in Victorian London, catering to respectable ladies and gentlemen who find themselves alone in the world. But now a dangerously obsessed individual has begun sending her trinkets and gifts suitable only for those in deepest mourning - a black mirror, a funeral wreath, a ring set with black jet stone. Each is engraved with her initials.
Desperate for help and fearing that the police will be of no assistance, Calista turns to Trent Hastings, a reclusive author of popular crime novels. Believing that Calista may be taking advantage of his lonely sister, who has become one of her clients, Trent doesn't trust her. Scarred by his past, he's learned to keep his emotions at bay, even as an instant attraction threatens his resolve. But as Trent and Calista comb through files of rejected clients in hopes of identifying her tormentor, it becomes clear that the danger may be coming from Calista's own secret past - and that only her death will satisfy the stalker....

Narration was Just Horrible

Louise Jane Underwood makes the female characters sound like children or idiots and the men Ug. I do not understand why Recorded Books has continued to have her record Jane Ann Krentz aka Amanda Quick's books. They have even had her re-record other books done by excellent readers such as Michael Page and Anne Flosnik. I actually made myself listen to this book, but it was an absolute hardship. I am sure Ms. Underwood is a good reader for other venues but this is not one. It made me hate the story. I would not recommend this book due to the narration. Yuck! There are so many wonderful readers out there. I will not be buying any Amanda Quick audio books read by this narrator. The mechanical voices on my ipod are better.This is just not one of Jane's better stories.

Worst narration ever!

This was the most annoying narration I have ever heard. Have always looked forward to the the latest from Amanda Quick. Started the book and realized this would be a struggle. The narrator made such a mockery of the characters I could not follow the story. Her characters are always strong independent women. The narrator made them into screeching half wits. If I can get those voices out of my head I may order the Kindle version
