On a cold January night in 1817, former cavalry officer Captain Gabriel Lacey is summoned to the banks of the Thames to identify the body of a pretty young woman who has been murdered. Stirred by compassion and angry at whoever would destroy her, Lacey vows to find her killer.
His search takes him to the Glass House, a sordid gaming hell and brothel that played a large part in the victim's past. As he learns more about Peaches, the victim, he discovers she is at the heart of scandals both among the haut ton and in the chambers of respectable Middle Temple barristers.
As he investigates, Lacey also finds himself drawn deeper into the schemes of the crime lord James Denis.
