The fourth book in the acclaimed William Dougal crime series, from the bestselling author of The American Boy and The Ashes of London.

James Hanbury is a reformed character. Or he would like to be. He plans to marry into respectability: his bride Molly is both rich and of good family. But alas, on the very day of their return from honeymoon, Molly is electrocuted.
