(From the publisher):
Something quite out of the ordinary has crossed Captain Lacey's path: a woman of quality walking unescorted through the streets of London in the dead of night. Her husband framed for the murder of a cavalry officer, and now dead, she is out in search of justice, and Lacey finds it his duty to help her in any way he can.
Looking into the life of the victim - one Colonel Westin - Lacey must ask himself what would drive a man to confess to a murder he did not commit. And as the danger builds, Lacey finds himself pulled further and further into the intrigues of an underworld villain. But he is determined to keep to his purpose - even when it could mean losing his life.
