If there's one thing Lady Julia Grey abhors, it's a secret. Oh, not her own secrets, of course. Her own secrets are necessary and justified. However, those kept by her husband, the dashing and enigmatic Nicholas Brisbane, a private enquiry agent, are completely unacceptable. Right now, Brisbane has several secrets. The most pressing one involves Julia's older brother, the esteemed Lord Bellmont, a government official who is closely connected to England's Prime Minister. What kind of business could her brother have with her husband, a man for whom he has endless contempt? Julia won't rest until she discovers the answers she seeks.
