Timothy Evans has spent a long time learning all the rules of polite behaviour to become the Duke of Fenmore. But in one eventful night he breaks every single one of those hard learned rules in the pursuit of Lady Claire Jellicoe. The two defy scandal to journey into the dark heart of London in pursuit of a murderer, only to find larceny on a grand scale not on the mean streets, but lurking behind Mayfair's elegant veneer.
