When an obscure moneylender named William Weems is murdered
in the humble Clerkenwell district, there are no
mournersâ€”and there is more than a little discreet rejoicing
among those whose meager earnings he so mercilessly devoured.
Yet when Inspector Pitt finds in the murdered manâ€™s office a
list containing the names of some of Londonâ€™s most
distinguished gentlemen, he begins to realize the magnitude
of his duty. William Weems, it transpires, was no common
usurer but a vicious blackmailer.
Fortunately, Pittâ€™s clever, well-born wife, Charlotte, has
entrĂ©e to Londonâ€™s best society. Her insights prove to be
invaluable to Pittâ€™s investigation as she observes, at
glittering balls and over gossipy tea tables, a world of
passion, power, and greed that the police are seldom
permitted to see.
