Imogen Robertson is a former television, film, and radio director. She won the London Telegraph's First Thousand Words of a Novel competition in 2007 with the opening of Instruments of Darkness, her first novel. She lives in London and is the author of a second novel featuring Mrs. Westerman and Mr. Crowther, The Anatomy of Murder. Wanda McCaddon began recording books for the fledgling audiobook industry in the early 1980s and has since narrated well over six hundred titles for major audio publishers, as well as abridging, narrating, and coproducing classic titles for her own company, Big Ben. Audiobook listeners may be familiar with her voice under one of her two "nom de mikes," Donada Peters and Nadia May. The recipient of an Audie nomination and more than twenty-five Earphones Awards, AudioFile magazine has named her one of recording's Golden Voices. Wanda also appears regularly on the professional stage in the San Francisco Bay Area.
"The book works splendidly as a period thriller, with complicated leads and informative details that illuminate 18th-century England for modern readers." ---Publishers Weekly
