Once London's top thief, Barclay Pearce has turned his back
on his life of crime and now uses his skills for a nation at
war. But not until he rescues a clockmaker's daughter from a
mugging does he begin to wonder what his future might hold.
Evelina Manning has constantly fought for independence, but
she certainly never meant for it to inspire her fiancé to
end the engagement and enlist in the army. When the
intriguing man who saved her returns to the Manning
residence to study clockwork repair with her father, she
can't help being interested. But she soon learns that
nothing with Barclay Pearce is as simple as it seems.
As 1915 England plunges ever deeper into war, the work of an
ingenious clockmaker may give England an unbeatable military
edge--and Germany realizes it as well. Evelina's father soon
finds his whole family in danger--and it may just take a
reformed thief to steal the time they need to escape.
