Praise for the Sebastian St. Cyr Series"Best historical thriller writer in the business!  Sebastian St. Cyr is…uncannily clever, unwaveringly reserved, and irresistibly sexy.  The entire series is simply elegant.”—New York Times bestselling author Lisa Gardner“Deftly combines political intrigue, cleverly concealed clues and vivid characters.”—Publishers Weekly (Starred Review)“A crescendo of suspense and surprise.”—Library Journal (Starred Review)“Thoroughly enjoyable…kept me enthralled.”—Deanna Raybourn“A ripping read...captivated me to the final page.”—Will Thomas“Harris crafts her story with the threat of danger, hints of humor, vivid sex scenes, and a conclusion that will make your pulse race.”—The New Orleans Times-Picayune“Harris delves deep into the mores of Regency England…”—Kirkus Reviews (Starred Review)

Long-festering family secrets, treachery and worse threaten Sebastian St. Cyr in Harris's addictive fifth Regency-era mystery starring the dashing soldier-turned-sleuth (after 2008's Where Serpents Sleep). From the start, St. Cyr's mission is sensitive: finding out who killed the bishop of London, a leading candidate for archbishop of Canterbury, in the crypt of the same country church where the mummified body of another murder victim was discovered only hours earlier. It becomes downright dangerous once the charismatic viscount unearths the surprising connection between the men as well as the many powerful enemies with motives for their murder-including his own father. Harris weaves palpable period detail and romantic subplots with such ease that her occasional descriptive laziness, such as repeats of "fiercely blue St. Cyr eyes," grates inordinately. But it shouldn't keep you from being swept up by her seductive antihero at his swashbuckling best. (Nov.) Copyright 2009 Reed Business Information.
