At the cusp of the 20th century, a fanciful Lillian Holmes wanted to be a true detective, but in fact she was a sheltered 26 year old heiress with a tormented past, a taste for mystery and... morphine. Then she saw him. Leaping from her neighbor’s 2nd story window, a beautiful stranger. Except, the Leaping Man was far more than he seemed. A wanton creature of darkness, he would threaten far more than Lillian’s life. He would take both her heart & soul. And she would rejoice in it.
