While her husband, Graham, is preoccupied with elevating their station in society, Violet is cultivating a sterling reputation for Morgan Undertaking. She is empathetic, well-versed in funeral fashions, and comfortable with deaths role in life--until its chilling rattle comes knocking on her own front door.Violets peculiar but happy life soon begins to unravel as Graham becomes obsessed with his own demons and all but abandons her as he plans a vengeful scheme.

And the solace shes always found in her work evaporates like a departing soul when she suspects that some of the deceased shes dressed have been murdered. When Grahams plotting leads to his disappearance, Violet takes full control of the business and is commissioned for an undertaking of royal proportions.

But shes certain theres a killer lurking in the London fog, and the next funeral may be her own.Equal parts courage, compassion, and intrigue, Christine Trent tells an unrestrained tale of love and loss in the rigidly decorous world of Victorian society.Praise for the novels of Christine TrentGenuinely engrossing.
