A three-year-old unsolved murder could prove fatal for Thomas Pitt—and his family When Thomas Pitt is required to reopen an unsolved murder case in exclusive Hanover Close, he doesn’t know how dangerous it will be for his family—and himself. Three years before, Robert York, an important member of the British Foreign Office, was murdered. Pitt believes a mysterious woman may hold the key to the York’s death, and his suspicion deepens when a York housemaid dies suddenly after a revealing talk with Pitt. Charlotte, meanwhile, goes undercover as a friend’s country cousin to snoop around the drawing rooms of Hanover Close. Disaster hits home when Pitt himself is accused of murdering the woman he’d been seeking and is thrown in prison. Only Charlotte and her recently widowed sister, Emily, Lady Ashworth, stand between Pitt and the gallows. Ignoring the danger, Charlotte advances her charade, diving deeper into the confidences of the York family and their friends, while Emily infiltrates the below-stairs of the York household by masquerading as Veronica York’s new ladies maid. With Pitt in prison and a murderer among the inhabitants of Hanover Close, Charlotte and Emily play a deadly game. It is only a matter of time before the killer beats them at it.
