In this suspenseful Arcane Society novel, New York Times bestselling author Amanda Quick delves into the underworld of passion, greed and powers that lie beyond this realm. 

Victorian botanist Lucinda Bromley has a rare talent: the ability to detect almost any type of poison. She also tends many rare plants, including a species of fern that was stolen from her conservatory just last month—and which turns up in a poison that was used in a nobleman’s murder.
 
To keep her name out of the investigation and to find the killer, Lucinda hires a fellow Arcane Society member. The founder of a psychical investigation agency, Caleb Jones is very good at protecting the Society’s secrets—and frighteningly good at getting the truth.
 
As a nearly overwhelming desire blooms between Caleb and Lucinda, they are drawn into the dark heart of a deadly conspiracy—and into a legacy of madness that could plunge Caleb into the depths of his own tortured soul...

About the Author:

From AudioFile:

In this elegant and well-paced Arcane Society novel, lovely Lucinda Brombley is gifted with the psychic ability to detect poisons. She is dubbed "Lucrezia" (as in Borgia) after her fiancé dies while drinking poisoned tea. Enter handsome Caleb Jones, whose extraordinary psychic powers make him a master at solving problems but less than masterful at dealing with Lucinda. Together they must learn who is killing people and leaving a trail leading to Lucinda. Anne Flosnik's talents are well showcased in this Victorian mystery, and her ability to portray various characters--from the upper crust of London to the lowest Cockneys--makes for delightful listening.
