Product description


"Fans of Anne Perry, Deanna Rayborn, and Tasha Alexander will root for
Karen Odden's newest heroine, Annabel Rowe--aspiring painter and now
amateur sleuth--investigating the murder of her art forger brother. The
novel's a delightful mix of mystery, history, and romance, served with
a delicious helping of lush period detail, while chemistry between
Annabel and the investigating Scotland Yard detective add spice to the
--Susan Elia MacNeal, New York Times bestselling author of the Maggie Hope series

"A darkly thrilling story filled with suspense and secrets, a courageous heroine, an edgy climax, and an atmospheric setting that perfectly captures the underbelly of London's art world in the Victorian era. A Trace of Deceit is an absolute winner!"--Stefanie Pintoff, Edgar Award winning author

Praise for A Dangerous Duet “Enter a world of teeming and dangerous cities portrayed in vitality and amazing detail. Meet characters with tremendous courage and appetite for life, and be glad you can return at will to the present.”--Anne Perry, New York Times bestselling author

"Odden's third effort injects a refreshing level of complexity, both in character development and plotting, into what one typically expects to find in historical cozies. This will appeal to fans of Victorian mysteries, as well as those interested in art history."--Booklist (starred review)

"A riveting addition to the author's Victorian mystery series!"--Rosemary Simpson

"Odden keenly evokes the physical as well as cultural milieu of Victorian England, and peoples her setting with fully realized and intriguing characters. This book will delight readers who like their mysteries cloaked in well-researched history."--Publishers Weekly
