MoreScotland Yard Detective Inspector John Northcut draws cases from the upper echelons of society as himself and the slums of London’s East End as Jack Silver. Constrained by a vow to conceal the secret of his birth, he cannot take his place in either setting except to investigate crimes. When Lady Charlotte Mayhurst’s body surfaces, he is called to identify her and solve her murder.The suspects include Lady Charlotte’s maid. But the woman in question is no servant. He recognizes Lady Ann Benefort, who pleads with him not to reveal her identity. John is torn between helping Ann avoid marriage to a man he has excellent cause to hate and focusing his attention on the murder investigation. The only way to solve either challenge lies in allowing distant and painful memories to surface.
