London, 1888…Two serial killers, Leather Apron (Jack the Ripper) and the Torso Killer are mutilating women in the slums of Whitechapel. But even in the bedchambers of the peerage, a killer is claiming lives. A determined Lady Kiera Everett wishes to hire the Zane Brothers Detective Agency to prove that her sickly father, and two other ailing members of the peerage, were murdered by their attending nurse, named in each man’s Will, but only if Keira can be involved in the investigation, much to Zachary Zane’s chagrin. And soon the murders of Whitechapel intersect with the investigation conducted by the Zane brothers. FIVE BOUNDLESS STARS
Murder is happening all around in Whitechapel. Lady Kiera Everett is on a mission to find out the truth behind her father's death. Kiera feels like his nurse had something to do with it since she was given money in his will. Getting the Zane Brothers Detective Agency to help her is just what is needed. Reluctantly they agree to have her "involved" in the investigation, much to their disapproval. Evan, Noah, and Zachery find the investigation leads them, Kiera most of all, into danger. Danger can be found everywhere. I have become a big fan of this author. I love history, and each book of hers I have read has been written well, full of history, and downright hard to put down. This story was full of history, had likable characters, and was full of mystery. I loved all the brothers and Kiera was awesome. The story was well told and kept me guessing till the end. I hated putting it down once I started it, so much so that supper ended up not so good.....oops.... This story not only provided a great mystery but a romance as well. As Kiera gets further involved with the detective agency, she finds herself involved with a certain brother as well. This was a great addition to an already excellent story. All I can say is that I loved this story and with the amazing ending it had, honestly, I can't wait for the next Zane Brothers Mystery.
