A wealthy lord who happens to be a brilliant scientist .
. . an enigmatic young widow who secretly pens satirical
cartoons . . . a violent killing disguised as a robbery . .
. Nothing is as it seems in Regency London, especially when
the Earl of Wrexford and Charlotte Sloane join forces to
solve a shocking murder.
Wrexford discovers the body of a gifted inventor in a dark
London alley, he promptly alerts the watchman and lets the
authorities handle the matter. But Wrexford soon finds
himself drawn into the murder investigation when the
inventorâ€™s widow begs for his assistance, claiming the crime
was not a random robbery. It seems her husbandâ€™s designs for
a revolutionary steam-powered engine went missing the night
of his death. The plans could be worth a fortune . . . and
very dangerous in the wrong hands.
Wrexford in his investigation is Charlotte Sloane, who uses
the pseudonym A. J. Quill to publish her scathing political
cartoons. Her extensive network of informants is critical
for her work, but she doesnâ€™t mind tapping that same web of
spies to track down an elusive killer. Each suspectâ€”from
ambitious assistants to rich investors, and even the
inventorâ€™s widowâ€”is entwined in a maze of secrets and lies
that leads Wrexford and Sloane down Londonâ€™s most perilous
stews and darkest alleyways.
lurking at every turn, the potent combination of Wrexfordâ€™s
analytical mind and Sloaneâ€™s exacting intuition begins to
unravel the twisted motivations behind the inventorâ€™s death.
But they are up against a cunning and deadly foeâ€”a killer
ready to strike again before they can recover the inventorâ€™s
priceless designs . . .
