All the Perils of This Night
by Elizabeth Cunningham




Overview -

When young Katherine vanishes without a trace while visiting relatives in London, her godmother's strange, often terrifying dreams may be the only clues that can save her. Katherine has been abducted and forced into sexual slavery in a highly exclusive gentleman's club whose powerful members will stop at nothing to protect their sometimes lethal secrets.

In their increasingly perilous quest to find her, all the adults in Katherine's life must confront the secrets they keep, even-or especially-from themselves. Keeper of the most terrible of all, Katherine finds a lifeline in her voice, singing psalms and Lady Soul with equal virtuosity and passion.

From the racial tensions of 1960s America to the seamy underbelly of London, All the Perils of This Night offers a vivid flashback of a tumultuous era and a window into a surprising and magical reality. With a Dickensian mastery of character and plot, Cunningham sounds timeless and timely themes-innocence and loss, guilt and redemption, slavery and liberation, and love across racial and gender boundaries. Best known for her award-winning series The Maeve Chronicles, Cunningham outdoes herself with All the Perils of this Night, deftly combining psychological complexity, humor, mysticism, and social realism in this riveting thriller.
