The Black Midnight by Kathleen Y'Barbo

Two Series of Murders Seem Mysteriously Connected
Step into True Colors -- a series of Historical Stories of Romance and American Crime

Could a series of murders in London in 1889 be related to unsolved murders in Austin, Texas, 1884? Queen Victoria wants to know and asks her granddaughter—who left the queen’s good graces by going off to America to become a Pinkerton agent—to quietly look for any connection. The catch is the queen doesn’t want her to do it alone. Alice Anne must find her former Pinkerton agent partner—now an attorney in Austin—and enlist him in the hunt. As the pair get closer to finding their suspect, their lives become endangered, but they refuse to be intimidated. Can this case be solved?

My Review

I really enjoyed this read, the author gives us a delightful young woman, one who has really spread her wings, and is now a Pinkerton Agent. She is pared with a man who seems to have a lot of compassion, and opens his heart to a woman he can never have.
The story spans continents, and sadly a string of murders, unsolved, and happening as we enter Austin Texas, and then meet suspects. As the book unfolds we leave Texas and go to Buckingham Palace in England and more murders, are they connected?
We enjoy being with Isaiah's family, and then with Anne's and the contrast couldn't be more different. Family, yes, and we see these characters interact, and get too enjoy being with both. Will sparks fly between these two?
Be sure to read the Author's Notes at the end, it gives great information as to what led to this book!

I received this book through Net Galley and Barbor Books, and was not required to give a positive review.
