Publisher's Summary

Modern art dealer Granville Hardwick has a way with people - a way of making them wish he were dead. His London gallery is filled with works of questionable merit, his dating pool consists of other men's wives, and his home is the eyesore of a fine old neighborhood. The neighborhood of Scotland Yard's Chief Superintendent Tony Hetheridge, as a matter of fact. So when Hardwick turns up dead, bashed on the head by a rather tasteless reproduction, it's Hetheridge and his new bride, Kate, who embark on solving the case.
When he married Kate, Tony expected things to be different. But with Kate's ne'er-do-well relatives making trouble on the home front, and his own enemies attacking from within Scotland Yard, the case of the dead art dealer and three unfaithful wives might do more than change Mayfair. It might change Lord and Lady Hetheridge forever.

A fascinating cast of characters—this series never disappoints

Emma Jameson’s Lord & Lady Hetheridge are an unlikely couple who manage to be brilliantly believable. It’s a Cinderella story set amidst the “Toft Squad” of Scotland Yard. Tony, Kate & their quirky colleagues tackle high profile murder cases which require tact as well as talent.
If you enjoy a baffling mystery set amidst the titled & entitled this series is your cup of tea.
