Location(s): London

Genre(s): Mystery, Historical

Era(s): Victorian

From the best-selling author, an all new historical mystery!

Inheriting a secret was just the beginning…

In London in 1872, Amelia Borchardt inherits a seat among a secret society. They call themselves “The Collectors”.

For centuries, they have kept secrets to protect their way of life, their ideals, and England itself. Now someone is watching them, an interloper rises from among the group and Amelia’s life is thrown into chaos when everything she thought she knew is challenged and secrets are exposed, which she never knew she held.

As Amelia spends time with her inherited collection of friends, she learns all is not as it seems and that even united guardians of secrets withhold the past from each other.

Where did Madam Hidgens disappear to for years? Centuries ago revenge was sealed into a letter, but by whom? And more importantly, how does this affect the Collectors? Amelia must fight for the truth or the Collectors, and all that she thinks is true, will evaporate.
