Investigators Prudence MacKenzie and ex-Pinkerton Geoffrey Hunter discover all that glitters is not gold in the Gilded Age, whether on the island of Manhattan or an island off the coast of Georgia ... DEATH BRINGS A SHADOW In spring 1889, Prudence and Geoffrey set sail from New York Harbor on a private yacht bound for Bradford Island, where her friend Eleanor Dickson is to be wed. The Sea Islands along the Georgia coast serve as a winter playground for the likes of the Carnegies, Rockefellers, Vanderbilts, and Dicksons. Despite her Yankee pedigree, Eleanor is marrying a Southern gentleman, Teddy Bennett, and Prudence is thrilled to be the maid of honor. But days before the wedding, the bride is nowhere to be found.

As Prudence and Geoffrey pursue a killer, they soon discover that Eleanor will not be the last to die on Bradford Island ...

robinb post-war southern attitudes about slavery as she & Geoffrey struggle to untangle how past sins have affected the present. It‘s a fairly tangled plot, and was actually more emotional for me than her previous books. We also begin to get a glimpse into Geoffrey‘s conflict over his family‘s southern background as well. I simply love this series. 4/5⭐️ Out 11/26. #KensingtonBooks #NetGalley 1mo
