Dr. Ginny Moon reappears in the next installment of the Madonna Key series. The notorious art thief has been given a new assignment by her employer, Duke Simon Adriano. The job is proving quite perilous as the svelte cat burglar discovers that her information about the building and its occupants is incorrect. If she ever meets Eric Cabordes, she may just kill him for his incompetence.
Racing from the scene, treasure in hand, Ginny – Aubergine de Lune – has time to reflect on how drastically her life has changed. All she ever wanted was to teach and raise her daughter. Her academic life is a memory, and her beloved daughter lost when she becomes entangled with the Adriano family. She clings to the hope that Lilah is safe and secure, loved by her adoptive family.
Eric Cabordes gave Ginny bad information – on purpose. He wanted to keep her as far away from the machinations of the ruthless Adrianos as possible. He has been working undercover for enough time to know that her usefulness is nearly at an end. Once it has reached its limits, Ginny will be expendable.
Dark Revelations offers readers many new insights into the series. Author Lorna Tedder brings together elements from previous stories and begins to weave them into the final tapestry. There is still a lot of ground to cover, though, and readers should stay tuned. I enjoyed Ginny’s introspection while hanging upside down and felt it was a fine way to open her story. The pace of this book never let up, and I was sorry to see it end. I am eager to read the next installment.
