After a brilliant military career, esteemed General Thaddeus Carlyon finally meets death, not in the frenzy of battle, but at an elegant London dinner party. His demise appears to be the result of freak accident. But the Geral's beautiful wife, Alexandra, readily confesses that she killed him - a story she clings to even under the shadow of the gallows. "A richly textured and timeless novel of suspense. Her Victorian England pulsates with life and is peopled with wonderfully memorable characters." - Faye Kellerman
