For in this new world, where the aristocracy rub shoulders with the emerging nouveau riche, there are those who would prefer the secrets of the past to remain buried...

The book was a little slow at the beginning, however, after the stage was set it was very interesting with wonderful complex characters as only Julian Fellows can bring to life.
Very entertaining and detailed book. Like taking a trip back to 19th century England.
Love this author
