When Lord Lammermoor plunges to his death from Westminster Bridge before a dozen witnesses, his death is ruled a suicide. But his fatal leap coincides with the arrival of Dr. Goldsworthy--a student of the famous Dr. Anton Mesmer and his research into animal magnetism. Sir John's suspicions grow when he learns that Goldsworthy's patron in London is none other than the beautiful Lady Lammermoor. And the deeper Jeremy investigates the Lammermoor family, the more suspects he discovers who stand to gain from Lord Lammermoor's death.

In what has been a very consistent 4 star series for me I think this last book was the least successful of them all.

I felt that it tried too hard to be dramatic and it ended up coming across as over the top.

The characters are still wonderful, the setting stellar and the writing great but I think the story suffered a little.
