Description
Cambridge, 1933, All Hollows' Eve. After being called to a country estate to ease the stomach troubles of a housekeeper, Dr. Adelaide Hartest bears witness to a stranger's final moments inside the All Hallows Church. Despite the dagger plunged into his chest, it is ruled a suicide. In order to solve these two deaths, which have occurred not only hours, but mere miles apart, Commissioner Joe Sandilands must uncover the truth before the Hellfire Club--an elite society of intelligentsia and aristocrats--topples the institutions and harms the people he has sworn to protect, especially one that he has truly come to love.

Notes

Description
"Cambridge, October 1933. Inside the old All Hallows Church on All Hallows' Eve, Doctor Adelaide Hartest bears witness to the final moments of a dying stranger. Despite the dagger plunged into the stranger's chest, the death is ruled a suicide, compounded by a formal confession before death. The victim, it is revealed, is known to Scotland Yard, and Assistant Commissioner Joe Sandilands is sent all the way from London to investigate. Thrown into a deadly ring of cloak-and-dagger politics and high-society hedonism, Sandilands must uncover the truth before the Hellfire Club, an elite society composed of intelligentsia and aristocrats, topples the institutions and harms the people he has sworn to protect--especially one he has come to truly love"--,Provided by publisher.
