(From the publisher):
Coronation Day, 1902. Charles and Kate Sheridan are pleased to be witness to the crowning of their king. Expatriate Jack London is also watching the festivities—but with a more skeptical eye. He has come to London to write an expose of the East End slums—and the coronation has not tempered his disdain for the monarchy.
This special day takes a sinister turn when an anarchist accidentally blows himself up with a bomb meant for the king. Charged with determining the extent of the danger facing the Crown, Charles and Kate turn up a number of intriguing—and disturbing—questions.
And then there is the matter of the mysterious, beautiful Charlotte Conway, editor of the anarchist newspaper where the dead man was employed. On the run from Scotland Yard, she takes refuge in Kate and Charles's home‐and in Jack London's arms. All of which makes for a very interesting investigation indeed...
