In this mystery by the author of Crooked Herring, a lawyer in Cromwell’s England receives dangerous info that could stop a murder—or get him killed.
John Grey is a newly minted lawyer and would-be ladies’ man with a bad habit of poking his nose into other people’s business and getting tangled up in intrigue. That’s unfortunate, because a mis-delivered letter from royalists has left Grey with more information about a murderous plot than it’s entirely safe to know. Can Grey prevent the murder? And of infinitely more importance, can he keep his mouth shut long enough to save his own skin?
