The beautiful, young and charming Alexander Falkland, toast of the ton, has been murdered and in the middle of one of his famous parties. His grief-stricken father recruits Julian Kestrel to investigate. As Julian peels back the layers of the mystery it is clear that all is not as it seems.
This is my favorite of this series thus far with excellent pacing and lots of twists and turns. Kate Ross was great at weaving lots of minor mysteries into the larger mystery keeping the reader guessing. With every book Julian becomes more and more interesting. I will be sorry to see this series end!
