Antiques appraiser Josie Prescott is in the midst of filming a segment for her new television show when an elegant older woman comes to see her. Veronica Sutton introduces herself as an old friend of Josie's father, and leaves her a parcel containing two previously unknown letters by Jane Austen. In this 14th outing (after Hidden Treasure), Josie sets off to learn what Veronica knows about her father and to discover whether the letters are real. As she draws close to the truth, she finds that some people will do anything to keep a secret—even kill.
"Beguiling…. Cleland maintains tension from the opening pages right up to the surprise conclusion. Miss Austen would approve."—Publishers Weekly
