"125 Gower Street, 1882: Sidney Grice once had a reputation as London's most perspicacious personal detective. But since his last case led an innocent men to the gallows, business has been light.

Then an eccentric member of a Final Death Society has the temerity to die on his study floor. Finally Sidney and March have an investigation to mount--an investigation that will draw them to an eerie house in Kew, and the mysterious Baroness Foskett ..."-- From dust jacket flap.
