A dazzling mixture of crime, romance, magic and myth from the author of the bestselling The Psychology of Time Travel.

The Kendrick family have been making world-famous dolls for over 200 years.

But their dolls aren't coveted for the craftsmanship alone.

Each one has a specific emotion laid on it by its creator.

A magic that can make you feel bucolic bliss or consuming paranoia at a single touch.

Though founded by sisters, now only men may know the secrets of the workshop. Persephone Kendrick longs to break tradition and learn her ancestors' craft, and when a handsome stranger arrives claiming doll-making talent and blood ties to the family, she sees a chance to grasp all she desires. But then, one night, the firm's most valuable doll is stolen.

Only someone with knowledge of magic could have taken her.

Only a Kendrick could have committed this crime...
