This book was an outstanding story with an amazing romance plot and interesting twists and turns that kept you on the edge of your seat.  I loved the characters, especially Francesca and Calder. The romance between these two is like no other. But having Rick Bragg, Calder’s brother on the side, the plot thickens.  In Deadly Illusions Francesca does her routine of catching criminals, only in this installment she’s after a serial killer who’s killings are single, young women of Irish descendant.  In the process of capturing a serial killer, she’s torn between the love of the two handsome brothers, Calder and Bragg in which she must choose.  I recommend this book.

Summary: Manhattan, 1902. 

Irrepressible heiress and intrepid sleuth Francesca Cahill moves from her own elegant world of Fifth Avenue to the teeming underbelly of society, a place of pride, passions. . .and sometimes deadly perversions. 

Despite the misgivings of her fiancée, Calder Hart, Francesca cannot turn away from a threat that is terrorizing the tenement neighborhood of Lower Manhattan. A madman has attacked three women, but while the first two victims survived, the third is dead, raising the stakes. All the victims are impoverished but beautiful Irishwomen--and Francesca fears that Maggie Kennedy and Gwen O'Neil, two friends who live nearby, could be next. 

Soon she is working with her former love, police commissioner Rick Bragg--Calder's half brother and worst rival. But even as Calder's jealous passions leave his relationship with Francesca teetering on the brink, Francesca is frantically on the killer's trail, certain The Slasher will strike again--afraid she will be too late. . .
