Asked to investigate the truth behind the death of Lady Caterina Notobene, Baroness of Prizzi, Serafina dives headlong into a web of lies and deceit. Is the suspicion of the Baroness’s daughter right? Did the Baroness get betrayed by the people who she trusted the most? Was her death a murder or is Serafina on a wild goose chase? The truth is out there and Serafina is determined to expose the liars and the people who planned the ruin and death of the Baroness.

An intriguing and interesting plot with the suspense maintained till the end, this Serafina Florio mystery is a captivating read. The book cover with its hauntingly beautiful look made me want to read the book badly and it did meet my expectation. The historical aspect of the book gives a glimpse into the life and times gone by and the author has done excellent research to present the most authentic account of life in those times. Each character has been presented very well and the needle of suspicion points to many people without actually resting on anyone till the end. The best part is the way the plot unfolds at the end and the truth is laid bare. Hats off to the author for weaving a story that keeps you on the edge of your seat till the end like a roller coaster ride.
