The year is 1910. 

 

Anthony, having recently graduated from university, is touring Italy when he receives a telegram from his mother.

 

 DARLING ANTHONY STOP DEVASTATING NEWS STOP MUST RETURN TO ENGLAND 

IMMEDIATELY STOP YOUR LOVING MOTHER.

 

Anthony returns to find that his father's body has been discovered in a hotel in London. Suspecting a deeper motive than that uncovered by the police, Anthony, with the help of his college friend James, begins to unravel the mystery behind the death; a discovery which embroils the whole family and household in a riveting story of passion, jealousy, love and deception.
