Highly sought-after young cook Kat Holloway takes a
position in a Mayfair mansion and soon finds herself
immersed in the odd household of Lord Rankin. Kat is
unbothered by the familyâ€™s eccentricities as long as they
stay away from her kitchen, but trouble finds its way
below stairs when her young Irish assistant is murdered.
Intent on discovering who killed the helpless kitchen
maid, Kat turns to the ever-capable Daniel McAdam, who is
certainly much more than the charming delivery man he
pretends to be. Along with the assistance of Lord
Rankinâ€™s unconventional sister-in-law and a mathematical
genius, Kat and Daniel discover that the household murder
was the barest tip of a plot rife with danger and treason
â€”one thatâ€™s a threat to Queen Victoria herself.
