Summary (From the publisher):

June 1811. On a summer's evening at the Royal Pavilion in Brighton, the beautiful young wife of an aging marquis is found dead in the arms of the Prince Regent himself. From her back protrudes a jeweled dagger that once belonged to Bonnie Prince Charlie. Around her neck lies an ancient bluestone-and-silver necklace said to have been worn by the Druid priestesses of Wales. Legend credited the necklace with mysterious powers - until it was lost at sea with its last owner, the mother of Sebastian St. Cyr, Viscount Devlin.

Still shadowed by rumors of his own dark past, Sebastian is lured into a dangerous investigation of both the marchioness's death and his own mother's uncertain fate. He soon discovers that the idle, profligate Prince is not as innocent as his court handlers would have the public believe. With the aid of his lover, a celebrated actress with secrets of her own, and his new servant, a reformed pickpocket, Sebastian follows a twisted trail that leads from a seaside palace to the most depraved London slums, from the murdered woman's elegant town house in Mayfair to a medieval tavern run by an ex-slave.

As he edges closer to the truth, Sebastian finds himself thrust into a world of hidden passions and disguised ambition. And when one murder is followed by another, he confronts an insidious conspiracy that imperils those nearest to him even as it threatens to bring down the monarchy.
