Virginia Dean wakes at midnight beside a dead body, with a
bloody knife in her hand and no memory of the evening?s events.
Dark energy, emanating from the mirrors lining the room, overpowers
her senses. With no apparent way in or out, she?s rescued by a man
she?s met only once before, but won?t soon forget?.
Owen Sweetwater inherited his family?s talent for hunting the
psychical monsters who prey on London?s women and children, and his
investigation into the deaths of two glass-readers has led him
here. The high-society types of the exclusive Arcane Society would
consider Virginia an illusionist, a charlatan, even a criminal. But
Owen knows better. Virginia?s powers are real?and so is the power
she exerts over him simply with her presence. And if her abilities
can be relied upon in the midst of great danger, they just might be
the key to his investigation.
