As the twentieth century begins and a new monarch is crowned, the life of a young veterinary surgeon, Ellen Marshall, ends. Her brother Alec, decorated soldier and ex-policeman, returns from Africa, in part to sort out his late sister’s affairs, and begins to suspect that Ellen’s death is not entirely as it seems. In time, Alec becomes embroiled in an investigation that takes in the great and the good, as well as the lowest reaches of the criminal underworld, and all corners of the Empire. As the bullets fly and knives are wielded, can the war hero really overcome all odds and find out how — and why — his sister died? He can, but the answer is more shocking than anybody could have predicted.
