Lost In Darkness

Book Excerpt

What on earth was he doing here?

He dipped his head in a curt bow. “Good day, Miss Balfour.”

“Mr. Moritz.” She tucked her chin in greeting. “What a surprise. I was just on my way to see you.”

“I suspected as much, but I felt a private setting would be more appropriate for our meeting.”

Her throat closed. This couldn’t be good. Forcing a smile, she stepped aside. “Do come in.”

After he passed, she retrieved her portfolio then scuttled ahead of him. “This way, please.” She led him into the sitting room and stopped near the bell pull. “Shall I ring for tea?”

“You may wish to ring for something stronger when I tell you why I am here.” He doffed his hat, the flat line of his lips giving away nothing. “Perhaps you should take a seat.”

The milk she’d taken with her breakfast curdled into hard lumps in her belly. She’d been right. Only ill could come of a superior deigning a home visit to one of his writers.

Willing her fingers to keep from trembling, she pulled out her manuscript and closed the distance between them, offering it over. “Perhaps you would like to read this first?”

Amelia Balfour has one dream. . .to tour Egypt as a travel writer. But when her wish is finally within reach, her father dies, and her malformed brother Colin depends upon her to arrange for a revolutionary surgery. Amelia returns home, hoping he’ll recover before the ship sails for Cairo.
Former Navy surgeon Graham Lambert is sick—of travelling, loneliness, and especially the injustice of the world. Leaving behind the military, he partners with a renowned surgeon, the man who promises new life to Amelia’s brother.
But just as the operation begins, Graham suspects the surgeon is a fraud. After a botched procedure, Colin goes mad and escapes, terrorizing their neighbor, author Mary Godwin—planting the seed for her greatest creation, Frankenstein.
Can Amelia and Graham stop Colin before he destroys everyone in his path and find the tender soul still trapped inside…or will they be too late?
