When Thomas Pitt is required to reopen a murder case in Hanover Close, he doesn't know how perilous it will become. Three years earlier Robert York, who worked for the Foreign Office, was murdered. Pitt believes a mysterious woman may hold the key to his death, and his suspicion deepens when one of the York household's maids dies suddenly - soon after talking to him. Then Pitt himself is arrested for the murder of the woman he'd been seeking. Only Charlotte and her sister Emily can stand between Pitt and the gallows.
Charlotte and Emily find a way to delve deep into the confidences of the York family and their household, but with Pitt in prison and a murderer among the inhabitants of Hanover Close, they are playing a deadly game...
