    Garden of Lies
    by Amanda Quick

    The New York Times bestselling author of
    Otherwise Engaged and The Mystery Woman
    presents an all-new novel of intrigue and murder set against
    the backdrop of Victorian London.

    The Kern Secretarial Agency provides reliable professional
    services to its wealthy clientele, and Anne Clifton was one
    of the finest young women in Ursula Kern's employ. But
    Miss Clifton has met an untimely end---and Ursula is
    convinced it was not due to natural causes.

    Bent on justice, Ursula hatches a plan: take Anne's
    place as stenographer to the reclusive poet Valerie, Lady
    Fulbrook. There are dark rumors about Lord Fulbrook, and his
    gloomy mansion in Mapstone Square seems the logical starting
    point for an undercover investigation.

    Archaeologist and adventurer Slater Roxton thinks Mrs. Kern
    is off her head to meddle in such dangerous business. But if
    this mysterious widowed beauty insists on stirring the pot,
    Slater intends to remain close by as they venture into the
    darker side of polite society and a den of iniquity called
    the Olympus Club. Together they must reveal the identity of
    a killer---and to achieve their goal they may need to
    reveal their deepest secrets to each other as well...
