One death by spontaneous human combustion is a rare act of God. Two… is surely a freakish coincidence. Three… well, that’s starting to look deliberate.
Cara has a new role as Queen Victoria’s artifact hunter, she’s adapting to married life and living in a country manor that more closely resembles a mausoleum.
In London, Inspector Fraser investigates a series of strange deaths by divine fire - except he doesn’t believe in coincidences. Despite himself, he enlists Cara’s help to identify what artifact could cause such a hideous death while his desire to bring her husband to justice burns unabated.
Someone’s intent on making sure a decades old secret stays hidden and Cara must figure out who is responsible before this case consumes her family and rocks the entire realm to its foundations.
Nero’s Fiddle picks up shortly after the second book leaves off. Combusted bodies are being found, and the search to find the artifact responsible begins.
I still love Cara and Nate. I love how they work together and are there for each other despite their differences. We also get a little more of the story about why Inspector Fraser hates Nate. Not all of it, but enough to pique my curiosity even more.
We see more of Cara in her official role for the Queen. And some of her friends too.
A great follow-up in this series.
