Paris, France—The Present:
A renowned mythologist, Jac L’Etoile—trying to recover from personal heartache by throw­ing herself into her work—learns of the sixteenth-century perfumer who may have been working on an elixir that would unlock the secret to immortality.

At the heart of every crime, there's a family…

My son is a murderer…. So begins this chilling and emotionally charged mystery from highly acclaimed author Barbara Taylor Sissel.

Emily Lebay had always thought of her family as ordinary. Sure, they've endured their share of problems, even a time of great trouble—what family hasn't?


LibraryJournal-A gripping read for enthusiasts of this genre. The characterizations are vividly real. Perfect for a book club

Kirkus- The story is thought-provoking and well-paced, and Sissel is truly gifted at setting up emotional conflict and heart-rending doubt. The characters' misgivings toward their own actions and the fragility of their loved ones are powerful, and Sissel builds a believable and poignant examination of a family under pressure and their attempts to learn the truth while bracing for the worst.

Publishers Weekly-Past secrets contribute to present-day angst in this solid suspense novel from Sissel (Evidence of Life)–the even pacing keeps the reader’s interest until the captivating conclusion.
