Publisher's Summary

When a carriage bearing the Arnifour family crest - a vulture devouring a slaughtered lamb - arrives at the Kensington home of Colin Pendragon, it is an ominous beginning to a perplexing new case. Lady Arnifour's husband has been beaten to death and her niece, Elsbeth, left in a coma. Is the motive passion, revenge, or something even more sinister?
Police suspicions have fallen on the groundskeeper and his son, yet the earl's widow is convinced of their innocence. Even as Colin and his partner, Ethan Pruitt, delve into the muddy history of the Arnifour family, a young street urchin begs their help in finding his missing sister. Ethan, regrettably familiar with London's underbelly, urges caution, yet Colin's interest is piqued. And in a search that wends from the squalid opium dens of the East End to the salons of Embassy Row, the truth about these seemingly disparate cases will prove disquieting, dangerous, and profoundly unexpected....

Dry

This is such a dry story, I had no interest for what would come next, I felt no climax, I was forced to read this garbage for school
