Everyone on Callander Square has something to hideâ€”but
someone will kill to keep a secret
When two dead infants are dug up in the Callander Square
gardens, the upper-class residents dismiss the burials as
the desperate act of a low-born girl and resent the
intrusion of Inspector Thomas Pitt into their well-ordered
lives. Pitt is not convinced that the case should be so
easily dropped. Also intrigued by the mystery, Pittâ€™s
well-born wife, Charlotte, pursues her own investigation
into places Thomas would never have accessâ€”the parlors and
inner chambers of the mansions on the fashionable square.
With her sister Emily, Lady Ashworth, who lives on Callander
Square, she delves into the lives and secrets of the
residents. Thomas and Charlotte, now expecting their first
child, form the perfect sleuthing couple. Elegant closets
soon spill their skeletons exposing long-hidden
secretsâ€”secrets that could lead even the most upright
aristocrat to kill.
>But will Pittâ€™s keen investigative skills and Charlotteâ€™s
insights into the workings of high-class society solve the
mystery in time to save the innocent residents of Callander
Square from the murderer among them?
