This is not the absolute best for Michaels, but it was a good story. It holds a lot of mystery. She's a good writer and is able to prove that in this book.

FROM THE CRITICS
AudioFile - AudioFile Review
An innocent young girl, a handsome man with a dark past, a rambling estate with ghosts and locked doors--there's no question that what we've got is Gothic romance. Jacqueline King's reading is somewhat problematic. Her narrative voice is adequate despite occasional lapses in phrasing and emphasis. Frequently, however, her dialogue is over the top. The wispy, breathy voice of the young heroine, the patently evil tones of her husband and the ludicrous accent of the would-be lover all seem to imply that she is reading the novel as a parody.

A good Gothic thriller. Barbara Michaels (who also writes as Elizabeth Peters) is reliably a good page-turning author.
