Frances Wynn, Countess of Harleigh, enjoys more freedom as a widow than she did as a wife. After an obligatory year spent mourning, she rents a home in Belgravia and prepares to welcome her sister, Lily, for her first London season. Frances begins her new life, but the ghosts of her old one make an unwelcome appearance. The police receive an anonymous letter implicating Frances in her husbands death. She assures them of her innocence, without revealing the scandalous circumstances of Reggies demise. Frances learns of mysterious burglaries plaguing Londons elite and rallies her wits, a circle of gossips, and her ever-chivalrous neighbour, Mr. Hazelton, to uncover the truth. A killer is in their midst, and Frances must unmask the villain before Lilys season - and their lives - come to a most unseemly end.
