The pursuit of truth
London, 1703. In a time when the old approaches to science coexist with the new, one elite community attempts to understand the world by collecting its wonders. Sir Barnaby Mayne, the most formidable of these collectors, has devoted his life to filling his cabinets.
For Cecily Kay, it is a passion for plants that brings her to the Mayne house. The only puzzle she expects to encounter is Sir Barnaby’s crowded cabinets. But when her host is stabbed to death, Cecily finds the confession of the supposed killer unconvincing. She pays attention to details—years of practice have taught to notice the smallest particulars—and in the case of Sir Barnaby’s murder, there are too many inconsistencies for her to ignore.
“Hart is bound to become a household name for readers who love clever and fair whodunits.” ―Publishers Weekly, starred review
