I am a huge fan of this no matter which pen name she is using at the moment (for those who do not know she also writes as Jayne Ann Krentz and Jayne Castle). Under this name the books are usually set in the past somewhere and this one seems to fall in the years between the two world wars. When Irene comes home to find her boss murdered she finds the word run in blood on the wall as well as a brief note of vague explanation. She quickly follows the suggestion reinventing herself on the opposite side of the country as a reporter for a gossip magazine. While researching a story she finds herself in the cross hairs of the killer while her own personal demons show up at the same time. The book moves at a quick pace with plenty of intrigue in a well-developed manner. Great for fans of mystery, suspense, and a little romance thrown in as well. I really enjoyed reading it. I give it 4/5 stars.
