by Tasha Alexander

A fourth of the way through this intricately crafted story I wondered to myself if it was based on a true story.   And whad’ya know? Truth is stranger than fiction. It’s based very loosely on an American Heiress who recreated the physical environment of her own captivity after she was rescued.  And that’s all I’m going to say about the that!  It’s a treat!Count.Heiress.Scan

It’s early 19th century, England, and our two favorite sleuths, Emily and Colin are called upon to find a missing heiress….missing for over twenty years; most likely dead.  Tasha Alexander takes us (chapter by chapter) from their clever detective work to  the room where the heiress is being kept.  At no point in the story is the reader certain whether she is alive or dead. How can a woman survive in a coffin-like room?

Tasha writes with verve and excitement.  And who wouldn’t like to visited the grand mansions of the day
