readers on the edge of their seats...A gripping tale by a grand mistress of the genre."--RT
Book Reviews (Top Pick)

"The breathtaking beauty of St. Petersburg before the Russian Revolution provides a dazzling backdrop for murder. . . . The purest mystery among Alexander's adventures presents a challenging puzzle, a historically interesting period, and detailed descriptions of one of the world's most beautiful cities." --Kirkus Reviews

"In addition to a satisfying puzzle and the always appealing protagonist, Alexander delivers a memorable portrait of a fairy-tale city dancing on the brink of revolution." --Publishers Weekly

On the Lady Emily Mystery Series:

"Author Tasha Alexander is one to watch--and read. . . . despite her cliffhanger climaxes and witty repartee, there's a depth of sensitivity which sets her apart." --The Huffington Post on Dangerous to Know

"With wisps of darkness, shadows of a ghost story and embers of heightened Freudian themes, Dangerous to Know is the perfect novel to curl up with and chase away the world." --Examiner.com

"Infused with wit and charm, with just the right amounts of danger, romance and detection blended in." --Denver Post on Tears of Pearl

"[Tears of Pearl] will please readers of Anne Perry, Laurie R. King, and Deanna Raybourn seeking a new fan-favorite author." --Library Journal on Tears of Pearl

"A thoroughly enjoyable adventure with both historical texture and emotional depth." --Anne Perry, New York Times bestselling author on A Fatal Waltz

"Alexander's sweetly choreographed plot dances between her wonderfully drawn sleuth, Lady Ashton, and Victorian high society." --Julie Spencer-Fleming, Edgar Award finalist and author of All Mortal Flesh on A Poisoned Season

"Alexander excels in depicting the social mores of a society uncomfortable with the independence of women, and deftly allows the plot to develop in tandem with Emily's growth." --The Baltimore Sun on And Only to Deceive
