Jane Austen’s brand of sharp social commentary infuses this wonderful classic. No character escapes her highly sensitive ear for dialogue and mannerism. Elizabeth Bennett (not yet 21) is the central character, and Mr. Darcy is her unlikely (and therefore likely) suitor. Although set in Victorian-era England, this book covers something timeless: vulnerability, fear, and courage in the face of romance, family, and humankind.
While investigating the ugly gang murder of a low level snitch, Pasadena detective Nan Vining finds clues that link this attack to her own brutal assault two years earlier. The Deepest Cut is Emley's exciting and riveting conclusion to her fast-paced trilogy.
