What do we have here? Madame Quinton fingered the cards beneath her hand as she watched the two women enter her booth.

In this scene, our hero, Dr. John Edward Hartwell, has caught a flash of light from outside as he meanders through the first-floor drawing room. He strolls over to the window and watches with disbelieving eyes as a person dances beneath the stars around the open flames of a fire, with what appears to be an umbrella in her hand. Alone. Then, suddenly his mystery woman reaches over and throws something on the fire.
A few moments later, John finds himself beneath the stars, standing just outside the circle of light, no more…

*I am voluntarily leaving a review for an ARC provided to me by the author*
