While Sir Nathaniel Conant, the chief magistrate at Number 4 Bow Street, accepts the official verdict of accidental death, Morton is certain that Glendinning was a victim of foul play. With the help of actress Arabella Malibrant, one of London's most celebrated beauties, he embarks on his own discreet inquiry. And as the upper circles of London society close ranks against him, Morton races to unmask a killer whose motives are as complex and unfathomable as the passions that rule the human heart.
“This lively re-creation of Regency London before Scotland Yard fascinates.”
“Set vividly in the urgency and squalor of its time. You will never forget Lucy.”
--Anne Perry, author of The Whitechapel Conspiracy
