A young friend pulls Scotland Yard's Richard Jury into the life--and death--of a wealthy bachelor.
The once-charismatic Billy Maples was last seen in a club named Dust, before his murder in a trendy London hotel. Proving as inscrutable, and challenging, to Jury as the case is the beautiful chief inspecting officer.
Before his death, Maples was a patron of London's finest art galleries and caretaker of author Henry James's house in Rye. It's there where Jury installs Melrose Plant, who takes his job to heart, as Jury closes in on the dark secrets behind Maples's friends and family.
