A tale of scandal, betrayal and suspense in the aftermath of the Napoleonic Wars . . .
Charles and Melanie Fraser are the perfect aristocratic couple: handsome, wealthy, accomplished and the toast of London society. But on a cold November evening in 1819, their six-year-old son Colin disappears and their perfect jewel-box of a life is shaken to the very core.
Catapulted into a desperate race against time to save Colin, Charles and Melanie must enter London's gritty underworld. For somewhere in the gin-soaked brothels, elegant gambling halls and debtors' prisons lie the key to Colin's release.
But, caught up in a tangled web of political and sexual intrigue, the Frasers find that no one is quite who they seem to be, and deception and betrayal come far more easily than truth and fidelity . . .
