    *Starred Review* The police say Anne Clifton committed suicide. Ursula Kern, proprietor of Kern Secretarial Agency, believes Anne may have been murdered. Because Anne was more than just an employee to Ursula, Ursula intends to fully investigate Anne's mysterious death. Archaeologist and adventurer Slater Roxton is not pleased when Ursula informs him she will be leaving his employment to take on a "personal" assignment. He is even less thrilled when he discovers exactly what Ursula plans on doing. Slater is convinced that Ursula's meddling in the official inquiry into Anne's death could very well result in yet another murder: Ursula's. Teaming up with her is the only logical solution as far as Slater is concerned, and this means finding some way of convincing Ursula to accept him as her new partner in detection. Quick (Otherwise Engaged, 2014) deftly matches up a dashing hero, who has some wonderful Indiana Jones-like qualities, with a coolly capable heroine, who proves to be more than his match. The end result is another top-drawer historical romance that delivers the perfect fusion of witty dialogue, intriguing characters, and seductive passion. Copyright 2014 Booklist Reviews.
