(6th in Sir John Fielding Mystery)
A nobleman, the last of his line, is hanged for murder and his possessions are set to go to the Crown. Suddenly, his younger brother, missing for seven years, reappears to stake his claim. But where has he been? Why does his mother react to him so oddly? And what connection does this case have to the suicide by hanging of an American in London? It is up to blind magistrate Sir John Fielding and his young ward, Jeremy Proctor, to unearth a cunning plot motivated by avarice, jealousy and ambition.
"Historical fiction done this entertainingly is as close to time travel as we're likely to get." (Newsday)
