Dark forces, murder and intrigue this week from the writers of Twitter...

Author Wendy Bayne, Guilds and Gunpowder: Crimes Against the Crown, 5

Lissa and Miles's return to their family estate in Dorset is short lived. Dark forces set on destruction are wreaking havoc with a vengeance. There is tension between the Agency and the Brotherhood, putting her father, leaders and colleagues at odds. The couple return to London to investigate and intervene, never imagining what fate has in store.

Murder, kidnapping and threats strike the leaders of the guilds. Tensions and tempers are running high, causing causing panic and mayhem. Miles and Lissa feel the pain firsthand when tragedy strikes a beloved family member, sending them into despair. The urgency to find the instigators of this deadly rebellion becomes a life and death matter--will they sort through the deadly chaos in time?

Author Bayne once again delivers a thrilling tale of deception and intrigue. As the details unfold in this page-turning read, you're drawn into an underground network determined to unleash their explosive nightmare. I have thoroughly enjoyed reading the historical mystery books in Author Bayne's series---her mysteries have entertaining plots, descriptive settings and lively characters. This latest tale does not disappoint, a highly recommended read!
