In 1883 Lady Darby has returned to London with her husband, Sebastian Gage to London for the season. The city is uneasy as parliament is trying to pass the reform bill and the new police were formed to handle crime in London. Shortly after arriving, a couple of “burkers” have been arrested for killing people and selling their bodies to the medical field. Lady Darby past has come to haunt her and she is starting to be snubbed by polite society. Keira and Gage become involved with the death of a young scion of the Nobility. A couple more death occurs on heirs to the peerage. In order to find the killer, Keira and Gage get caught in the mob scene at the hanging of two of the burkers. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS BOOK AND SERIES.
