1817. Dawn breaks on a summer's day in Chalk Farm, London, and the scene is set for a duel between a lady's two ardent admirers.
Paul Skillen has been teaching Mark Bowerman how to shoot properly and, although he is not sanguine of his chances, stands as his second.
Although the duel is broken up, the passions behind the duel seem to spill out into the full light of day when one of the two duellists is found dead, shot between the eyes.
Paul and his twin Peter are determined to see justice done and are soon enmeshed in threads of inheritance, treachery and fraud.

"Edward Marston invariably comes up with a lively and involving tale in all his books... this is a book that hits the ground running with vigorous events happening on every page, and therefore a lot to recommend it. The Regency period is most often depicted in romances which focus usually solely on high society, so it is a treat to read about the seamier side and see what else was happening. This is now shaping up to be yet another of the talented and versatile Mr Marston's entertaining mystery series.--Rachel A. Hyde "MyShelf.Com "
