Partners in marriage and in trade, Lady Julia and Nicholas Brisbane have returned from abroad to set up house in London. But merging their collections of gadgets, pets and servants leaves little room for the newlyweds themselves, let alone Brisbane's private enquiry business.
Among the more unlikely clients: Julia's brother, Lord Bellmont, who swears Brisbane to secrecy. Not about to be left out of anything concerning her family, Julia picks up the trail of the investigation.
It leads to the exclusive Ghost Club, where alluring Madame Seraphine holds seances...and a few powerful gentlemen in thrall. From this eerie enclave unfolds a tangle of dark deeds, whose tendrils crush reputations and throttle trust.
Shocked to find their investigation spun into newspaper headlines, bristling at the tension it causes between them, the Brisbanes must unite or fall. For Bellmont's sake-and more-they'll face dangers born of dark secrets, the kind men kill to keep....
