Low crimes in high society
London 1815. Newly widowed Lily Adler is determined to create a meaningful life for herself even without a husband. At a ball thrown by her oldest friend, Lady Walter, she expects the scandal, gossip, and secrets. What she doesn't expect is the dead body in Lady Walter's garden. Lily overheard the man just minutes before he was shot: young, desperate, and attempting blackmail. Stunned and confused, Lily realizes she's the only one with the key to catching the killer. Aided by a roguish navy captain and a mysterious heiress from the West Indies, Lily sets out to discover whether her friend's husband is mixed up in blackmail and murder. But the dead man knew secrets about people with power. Secrets that they would kill to keep hidden.
"A perfect London crime novel and a masterful debut; fast-paced, expertly researched, and intricately plotted. I actually gasped when I got to the end!—Alex Grecian, author of The Saint of Wolves and Butchers
