It's tough to be a preacher's kid, and for Leo Stanhope it may be harder than for most; he was born Charlotte, and in Victoria's England, there is little room for persons unwilling to know their place and stick to it. In this follow-up to Half Moon Street, Leo is being blackmailed, even as he is learning to be a father to two children.
"Well-crafted…. In this nicely plotted puzzle, Reeve movingly explores Leo's inner life." —Publishers Weekly
