Product description

Review

"[Painting the Darkness] has all the ingredients of a first-class melodrama . . . engaging and satisfying."--Times (UK)

"Goddard, a master of intricate period skullduggery, hits his stride with a superb thriller on the old, old theme of the claimant to the identity of a long-vanished heir. . . . [A] superior Victorian sampler."--Kirkus Review (starred review)

"It explodes into action so that the reader is hooked by the time he reaches the third page. . . . A superb storyteller."--Sunday Independent (UK)

"Goddard goes from strength to strength. . . . This exciting story, with its careful complexity and completeness--no loose ends--is a joy to read."--Publishers Weekly
