People are dying in Bedford Square and the bodies are being stolen from their graves. What is the connection between these events and the surly young Lord Burtrum? Lady Priscilla is determined to solve this enigma, but the riddle of her newly discovered feelings for Sir Neville is tantalizingly hard to understand.
