This is the third book in the Alice Quentin series of books and having been lucky enough to be sent a copy by Kate Rhodes I couldn't wait to start this next installment. What I love about Kate's books is that I have a feeling of tripidation all the way through and she has a great way of keeping you waiting until the very last pages as to "who did it"!! I absolutely loved this book and in my opinion it is the best book so far. Cannot wait for the next one!!
