Synopsis

A poisoned vicar and the mysterious Miranda

Autumn 1763. Alec Halsey has been elevated to a marquessate he doesn't want and Polite Society believes he doesn't deserve. And with the suspicion he murdered his brother still lingering in London drawing rooms, returning to the city might well be a mistake. So when a nobody vicar drops dead beside him at a party-political dinner, Alec’s foreboding deepens. Uncovering the vicar's true identity, Alec suspects the man was poisoned. But who would want a seemingly harmless man of God murdered, and why?
