Summary (IBList user synopsis):

Devereaux Bolinvar is perfectly content with life of his New Jersey estate, fox-hunting and breeding thoroughbred horses. Suddenly, a startling and alarming letter from an uncle he'd never met sends Devereaux to Virginia, where some dark family secrets are unveiled. An unscrupulous family aide intends to use this information to enslave Devereaux's cousin Hugo. Dev arrives in time to prevent disaster, but too late to prevent a seemingly irreparable rift between himself and his cousin, which he longs to be able to mend. Hoping that time will help to heal the breach, Dev goes to Europe to improve his riding, and while there learns things about his cousin which make him worry even more. Sensitive, with the mind of an artist, Hugo has taken the truth about his family quite hard. When Dev receives another letter summoning him to Virginia - a letter which reveals very little about Hugo's true intentions - Dev wonders whether he will finally have the chance to set things to rights, or whether his cousin is planning some mysterious plot of his own.
