In this new series debut, the creator of the CWA Historical Dagger–winning Jim Stringer series takes us to modern Mayfair—a world of champagne, Lamborghinis, and Savile Row suits. Detective Superintendent George Quinn—a Mayfair resident and dandy, though with a razor-sharp brain—has set up a new police unit, dedicated to investigating the super-rich. When he is shot under mysterious circumstances, DI Blake Reynolds is charged with taking over. What Reynolds hadn't bargained for was Quinn's flinty personal assistant Victoria Clifford, who knows more than she's prepared to reveal. The clues left by Quinn lead to a jewelry theft, a murderous conspiracy among some of the richest Russians in London, and the beautiful Anna, who challenges Reynolds's professional integrity. Reynolds and Clifford must learn to work together fast—or suffer Quinn's fate.

"Full of memorable character portraits and incisive observations on wealth and social class ... this stylish departure by the author of the long-running Jim Stringer series is full of droll humor."—Kirkus Reviews
