National bestselling author Robin Paige brings Victorian England vividly to life in a brand-new mystery featuring Lord Charles Sheridan and his feisty American wife, Kate.It's Derby day at Epsom Downs, and the Sheridans are on the scene. While Lord Charles sets up his camera to photograph the race for the Prince of Wales, Kate absorbs the atmosphere as fodder for her new novel. Watching the Derby from a box shared with Jennie Jerome Churchill and world-renowned actress/mistress/horse owner Lillie Langtry, Kate senses something strange about the outcome. And that evening's news bears out her suspicions….It seems that while some gamblers lost their shirts on the race, one unfortunate jockey lost his life. Hard on the heels of that shock comes a British bank's request that Charles investigates the theft of Lillie Langtry's jewels from their vault. The case pulls Kate and Charles into Miss Langtry's fast, frantic social circle as they probe into her secret life, getting caught in a dangerous web of intrigue. There are no safe bets as kidnapping, bitter rivalries, and past love affairs cast suspicion in all directions. Now, as the lord and his lady run neck and neck with thieves and murderers, the race for justice stands to be a photo finish…
