Elizabeth Darcy and her beloved husband Fitzwilliam have taken on the responsibility of finding a suitable suitor for Elizabeth's younger sister Kitty, thereby assuring her a proper place in society.
The angels smile on the young, a perfect match is found, and wedding plans are soon under way. Suddenly a change in personality occurs in Kitty's soon to be model husband--a change that jeopardizes not just the Darcys' social standing, but their lives.
A mysterious mirror and an insidious reprobate from the past are parts of a dangerous puzzle--and the consequence of failing to solve that puzzle may be the exchange of a soul for a soul.
Once again the Darcys take center stage as the Regency era's answer to The Thin Man's Nick and Nora, searching for truth between tea times, amid the social whirl of Jane Austen's England.
