My name is Cherry St. Croix. Society would claim that I am a well-heeled miss with an unfortunate familial reputation. They’ve no idea of the truth of it. In my secret world, I hunt down vagrants, thieves . . . and now, a murderer. For a monster stalks London’s streets, leaving a trail of mystery and murder below the fog.
Eager for coin to fuel my infatuations, I must decide where my attentions will turn: to my daylight world, where my scientific mind sets me apart from respectable Society, or to the compelling domain of London below. Each has a man who has claimed my time as his—for good or for ill. Though as the corpses pile, and the treacherous waters of Society gossip churn, I am learning that each also has its dangers. One choice will see me cast from polite company . . . the other might just see me dead.
Hard as she tries, Cherry shows us time and time again just how young and naïve she truly is. She may think herself tough and worldly due to her horrendous childhood, yet she repeatedly comes across as the sheltered and pampered young miss she so desperately tries to bury. I do, however, enjoy her escapades and hope that with time and experience upcoming novels will show her mature emotionally and intellectually. She is a great little heroine who has a propensity for getting into all sorts of trouble which I find to be her most entertaining attribute.
