When Abigail Lawless, the eighteen-year-old daughter of Dublin's coroner, by chance discovers a message from the maid's seducer, she is drawn into a world of hidden meanings and deceit. Pushing against the restrictions society places on a girl her age, she pursues an increasingly dangerous investigation. And watching from the shadows is a sinister figure who she believes has killed twice already, and is waiting to kill again...
