Summary

It's been two months since Will Darling saw Kim Secretan, and he doesn't expect to see him again. What do a rough and ready soldier-turned-bookseller and a disgraced, shady aristocrat have to do with each other anyway?

But when Will encounters a face from the past in a disreputable nightclub, Kim turns up, as shifty, unreliable, and irresistible as ever. And before Will knows it, he's been dragged back into Kim's shadowy world of secrets, criminal conspiracies, and underhand dealings.

This time, though, things are underhanded even by Kim standards. This time, the danger is too close to home. And if Will and Kim can't find common ground against unseen enemies, they risk losing everything.

Contains mature themes.

Marvelous sequel, enrapturing ending

Firstly, if you haven't read Slippery Creature, go! Go now! It's wonderfully written, and should definitely be read before this. It needs to be really, for story and context. The narration is spot-on, you often forget its not actually a group of people having a conversation. Story wise, it is a brilliant depiction of Kim & Darling, staying very much in character with their values and choices. I don't want to give much away of the story, just know this was the audio equivalent of 'not being able to put it down until I get to the end'

just as good as bk 1!

Flappers, secret societies, a dashing spy and a bookseller! All of this combine into a swoony fun adventure novel with steamy scenes and witty repartee. Great narration. Looking forward to bk 3!

Great spy book

The mystery was great. It continues with the Zodiac storyline from the first book, and I was shocked to discover Capricorn's identity. I like a mystery that isn't super predictable. I also loved that we finally acknowledged that Kim and Will are a damn mess! The ending of the book was my favorite bit. The mystery is solved and Kim and Will finally acknowledge that they have feelings! Imagine that. But they also face the reality that their feelings are messy and they are not that great at the parts of their relationship that exist outside the bedroom. But, this doesn't tear them apart and they don't agree to live forever in toxic matrimony. They actually agree to work on it! If I don't get another book with more mystery and these two actually being happy and sorted out, I will be quite upset.
