By Laura Joh Rowland

A photographer in Whitechapel, London, Sarah Bain can be a personal detective—skilled at taking pictures others’ darkish secrets and techniques, and professional at conserving her personal. while a filthy rich banker, Sir Gerald Mariner, posts a good-looking present for locating his lacking child, all of London joins in, hoping to win that money for themselves. often discouraged through a saturated industry, Sarah is as a substitute apparently allured as she realizes the case hits a lot in the direction of domestic than she first thought.

As she dives in, she discovers a photo of child Robin Mariner and his mom. however it eerily resembles the autopsy images Sarah, herself, takes of deceased kids posed to appear as though they have been alive. Now it’s uncertain no matter if the abduction is a cover-up to conceal the truth of his disappearance, or if it’s actually a cry for help.

The clock is ticking and Sarah needs to discover the reality prior to her previous catches as much as her in A Mortal Likeness, the gripping follow-up to bestselling writer Laura Joh Rowland’s The Ripper’s Shadow.
