Founded in 1946 by war widow Gwendolyn Bainbridge and ex-intelligence agent Miss Iris Sparks, the Right Sort Marriage Bureau flourishes in the post-war climate. In this fourth outing (after A Rogue's Company), however, Gwendolyn is struggling to regain full legal control of her life, her finances, and her son, and the path is strewn with traps and pitfalls. Meanwhile, Iris is tracked down by a young woman who has a very personal connection to someone from her own past—and it could prove deadly.
