A mystery of stolen antiquities has Kat Holloway setting
aside her apron once again for the intrigues of the upper
echelons of Victorian London
has gone missing from the home of a wealthy baronet, and his
wife stands to take the blame. When Kat's employer asks for
help in clearing her friend's name, Kat trades her kitchen
for the homes of Mayfair's wealthiest families. Soon
antiques are disappearing not only from the extravagant
households of connoisseurs and collectors, but from the
illustrious British Museum.
As the thefts increase in
frequency, Kat calls upon her friend Daniel McAdam, who has
already set himself up in a pawnshop on the Strand as a
seedy receiver of stolen goods. When a man is murdered in
the shop, Kat must use all of her wits to see that the
thieves are caught and justice is done.
