“Put in an asylum as a child and given inhuman treatments for his "madness", people now whisper that Lord Ian MacKenzie is a murderer. Beth Ackerley doesn't believe he would hurt anyone. Yes, he is very anti-social, lacks eye contact and sometimes shows no emotions. But Beth sees another side of Ian and defends him against his critics. Soon she is investigating the murders of two prostitutes, hoping to keep Ian from hanging for murders he did not commit.
I put off reading this book because it just didn't sound like something I would like. Now I wish I had read it sooner. Ian has Aspergers Syndrom, a form of high-functioning autism. Beth is a woman who grew up in the slums, but has made something of herself. As Ian and Beth's relationship grows, we see that they are perfect for each other.
I found the mystery in this book to be interesting, if not really a surprise. And, I enjoyed the other members of the MacKenzie family. I'll definitely be reading the next book in the series. My rating: 4.5 Stars.”
