Even a highwayman has friends - sometimes in unexpected places
London society is outraged when charming, popular Boyce Polp is murdered on his way
to an evening party, apparently by one of the highwaymen who make travelling even
a few miles such a perilous business. But Miss Georgiana Grey, herself no stranger
to peril, has her own reasons for doubting the version of the tragedy which is soon
the talk of the town.
She uncovers a darker side to Polp, and though her probing makes her as unpopular
as the Bow Street Runner who is investigating the case, Georgiana is determined that
justice will prevail.
