But the stories themselves are always disappointing. Spoiler alert This is the 2nd book in a series but I did not really feel that I was missing any information while reading this book. Bethany was a 20 year old virgin who fancied herself in love with Ian 3 years ago. Ian, 31 at this beginning of the story, turned Bethany down 3 years ago for reasons unknown.
Later we learned that Ian turned Bet Melody Thomas seems to be a constant 3 stars writer for me.
London: the biography by Peter Ackroyd
Later we learned that Ian turned Bethany down because he was a married man. He was and remained a married man for the entire duration of the book, with a wife who betrayed him and was locked away somewhere. Bethany kind of threw herself on Ian repeatedly in this book, which bothered me a little bit but well, it is what it is. This is some kind of a spy story with Ian being involved in a "league"doing all kinds of questionable businesses in the name of the great empire. They were reunited at a party where both of them were investigating something but neither would come clean with their intentions.
Bethany quickly folded because she just wanted to be close to Ian and the "invetigation" was a ruse it seems to me.
Ian seemed to be taking this entire spying business more seriously and I admit to mild annoyance with Bethany for her naivity. Their relationship was ok, nothing notable. You know they both had the hots for each other but Bethany kept throwing hints at Ian which Ian consistently turned down. This spiel did not end after Bethany and Ian finally slept with each other.
Ian kept up his antics about how he did not want Bethany involved and Bethany continued to insist that she was his "partner". Like I said, the romantic relationship is kind of blah.

The story. Oh man the story. It is messy and I am being kind. All kinds of mysteries, people dying, poisoning, hallucinations, dead wife not dead, etc. Melody Thomas kept me reading, which was no small feat. But I muddled through the entire book feeling confused and frustrated, waiting for the relationship to progress but getting confusing mystery plots instead.
But like I said, Melody Thomas kept me reading. For that I am giving the book 3 stars. At least it kept my interests. View all 3 comments. Nov 12, iva rated it really liked it.

The unmistakable rattle and yowl came of a stringed instrument being smashed. Horror struck me. Oh God, no. The sound reverberated through the ballroom. I leapt towards the inner doors and instantly fell back again. Dragged by Gordain. He held me against his broad chest. The tinkle came of small pieces of wood landing on the marble floor. I sobbed, unable to help the upset wrenching from my throat.
But we have to go. Another crash came from the hall. The look in his eyes told me he understood, except how could he? Richard had broken my violin.

In a house full of antiquities and relics, it was the one thing I valued. Gordain grabbed my hand and slung the heavy bag over his shoulder like it was weightless. He kept me at his side, half dragging me out of the French doors.
Then I got with the programme and found my feet. We sprinted along the side of the house. Around the corner, we emerged into the car park. My anger spiked. My chest heaved, and tears spilled down my cheeks. I raised both hands above my head and ran at the car. The rock left my fingers. It bounced off the windscreen. Dismay flattened me as the rock rolled harmlessly away.
Gordain jerked to a halt at my side. Glass exploded in a savage-edged shower, raining onto the gravel at our feet. I stared, agog, then switched my astonished gaze to Gordain. His muscles rippled where he lowered his arms. Gordain whooped then snatched up my hand again, pulling me with him as he retrieved the bag. Now run!
