Returning home through a sticky London night in July 1816, Captain Gabriel Lacey is surprised to see a well-dressed, elegant woman stride to the middle of an unfinished bridge. Following her in curiosity, Lacey is on hand to rescue her from an attack by a footpad. As grateful as she is for the help, the lady refuses to give her name and direction, and so Lacey takes her to his own rooms in a street off Covent Garden to rest. He discovers that she is one Lydia Westin, wife of Colonel Roehampton Westin, who has recently been accused of murdering an English officer in Portugal during the Peninsular War. Before he could come to trial, however, Colonel Westin was found dead at the foot of the staircase in his own house. Lydia declares that her husband was murdered and that she knows the culprits' identities. Intrigued, Lacey begins to investigate, and soon finds himself mired in scandals past and present. Lucius Grenville returns in this installment, the rich man-about-town who has become Lacey's sidekick. The story also contains the first appearance of Lady Breckenridge.

*spoiler alert*

It's been a while since I last read the first installment of the Captain Lacey mystery series. So far, I'm really enjoying the cast of characters and the setting. I've never read a series with an impoverished inquiry gentleman as the protagonist. I also felt that there was an opportunity to take Lacey and Lydia's story towards a more progressive resolution, but alas, it was not meant to be. On a side note though, I think Lacey had a greater depth of emotions invested into the relationship than Lydia, but that could be because I didn't feel she was given a lot of character depth, despite her being one of the main characters of the story
