Sick of Shadows, Paperback
2 out of 5 (2 ratings)


It would seem that even a pretend engagement cannot keep Lady Rose Summer from trouble. Bored with endless parties, teas and balls, she befriends Dolly Tremaine, a beautiful young girl newly arrived from the country and overwhelmed by the demands of the Season.

Their friendship is cut tragically short, however, when Dolly is found dead in the river, with flowers in her hair and blood on her breast. Rose immediately summons her fiance, investigator Captain Harry Cathcart, to help solve the mystery of Dolly's death - and to keep her from becoming the murderer's next victim.

Review by

Clumsily styled predictable plot involving shallow caricatures in a poorly researched pastiche of Edwardian England. A deeply disappointing book.

Review by

Formulaic, but passes the time. The snippets of information about Edwardian life are really annoying.
