The Dark Lantern

By Gerri Brightwell
Narrated by Anne Flosnik / 11 hours 4 minutes

The Bentley's London household is in flux. The elderly matron is on her deathbed, so her son, recently returned from France, is acting as the new master of the house. While he is busy developing a reputation in anthropometry, the science of identifying criminals by body measurements, he remains unaware of the mysteries dwelling under his own roof. For no one is quite who they seem-not the mysterious woman who claims to be the bride of his dead brother, not the new maid just hired from the country, not even his own beautiful but elusive wife. His wife seems to recognize the new servant girl for the impostor she is, yet she remains inexplicably silent-perhaps because she has her own secrets to protect. A fascinating portrayal of nineteenth-century England and a page-turning mystery, The Dark Lantern exposes the genteel "upstairs" of a Victorian home, as well as the darker underbelly of its servants' quarters. The clash of these two classes makes for a suspenseful novel of mistaken identities, intriguing women, and dangerous deception.
