Charles Lenox, Victorian gentleman and armchair explorer, likes
nothing more than to relax in his private study with a cup of tea,
a roaring fire and a good book. But when his lifelong friend Lady
Jane asks for his help, Lenox cannot resist the chance to unravel a
Prudence Smith, one of Jane's former servants, is dead of an
apparent suicide. But Lenox suspects something far more sinister:
murder, by a rare and deadly poison. The grand house where the girl
worked is full of suspects, and though Prue had dabbled with the
hearts of more than a few men, Lenox is baffled by the motive for
the girl's death.
When another body turns up during the London season's most
fashionable ball, Lenox must untangle a web of loyalties and
animosities. Was it jealousy that killed Prudence Smith? Or was it
something else entirely? And can Lenox find the answer before the
killer strikes again--this time, disturbingly close to home?
