Deception's daughter
DECEPTION’S DAUGHTER, the second in the Martha Beale series. When the daughter of one of Philadelphia's finest families disappears, Martha Beale—the fiercely independent society lady first introduced in THE CONJURER—once more joins forces with her secret beau, Thomas Kelman, to track the heiress. From the outlying Blockley House for the homeless, with its thin walls and hungry inhabitants, to the odor-laden “bawdy house” of Madam Kat, to the elegantly furnished drawing rooms (and bedrooms) of the wealthy, the streets of 19th century Philadelphia come to life with vibrant detail, and characters that are a cross-section of a hierarchical society. DECEPTION’S DAUGHTER was an IMBA bestseller.
