Finding the key to a woman's heart is the most difficult mystery to solve for this devoted detective... Eight years ago, Detective Inspector Owen Renderwell's partnership with an infamous swindler left him entangled in an affair with the thief's beautiful and cunning daughter, Charlotte. But when her father was arrested and Owen's promise to redeem him was never fulfilled, Charlotte vowed to cease any passion they ever shared. But when Owen follows a murderer's trail of encrypted letters to London, his path leads him straight to the one woman who wants absolutely nothing to do with him. Charlotte, the only person who can decipher the letters, agrees to decode the messages, but refuses to relinquish her heart. As they work closely on the case, Charlotte's presence becomes intoxicating and Owen finds her harder and harder to resist...

Reviews for A Talent for Trickery

Johnson begins her new Victorian-set Thief Takers series with a bang with a richly nuanced cast of characters whom Dickens himself might envy, and an expertly crafted mystery sweetened with just the right amount of passion. - Booklist
