Description


"Unforgettable female leads power this stellar historical mystery"(BookLife Reviews) by Robert Brighton, told with "writing that is on par with the cunning of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and David Morell" (Manhattan Book Review).


A swirling tale of industrial espionage, love, and betrayal, Current of Darkness follows aspiring sleuth Sarah Payne behind the sleek, honeymoon fa ade of Gilded Age Niagara Falls and into a shadowy demimonde of ruthless union bosses, saboteurs, and tycoons-including the powerful, handsome, and mysterious Charles Kendall, whose intentions toward Sarah are unclear.


Meanwhile, sultry widow Alicia Miller is set on taking charge of her murdered husband's company-only to find herself pitted against the new majority owner, who has his own ideas about women in the world of men. But cunning and captivating Alicia has ideas, too-and will stop at nothing to come out on top.


Both women will have to find the courage and resourcefulness-and set aside their own simmering feud-to survive in this "winning story of action, sabotage, cutthroat business dealings, and women daring to be something new at the dawn of the American century" (BookLife Reviews).


A captivating, page-turning, and immersive tale of industrial espionage, love, and betrayal - set against the backdrop of the glittering Gilded Age. Current of Darkness will draw readers in, and hold them under, until its final, explosive pages.
