Things are not what they seem in fashionable Rutland Place, where secrets that are never discussed at tea include murder. When her mother asks her help in finding a lost locket with a compromising picture, neither Charlotte Pitt, nor her mother, has any idea that the locket may be at the center of a bizarre chain of events leading to murder. Arriving at her mother's home at Rutland Place, Charlotte discovers that other residents of the exclusive neighborhood have also suffered similar small thefts. It all appears quite mild as crimes go a light-fingered servant, perhaps. That is, until Mina Spencer-Brown, a woman known for her prying, is poisoned and dies. Inspector Thomas Pitt quickly surmises that Mina's snooping might have led to her murder, but what secrets had she stumbled upon? And whose? As Pitt patiently struggles to break down the protective silence of high-born neighbors, Charlotte works behind the closed doors of society's drawing rooms to help unravel a mystery...

Someone in Rutland Place, Charlotte's old home, is stealing valuables, and her mother is one of the victims. She and Emily try to help her mother, as some of them reappear. What's going on, and why? It's not a matter for the police, at least not until murder happens. Another interesting viewpoint on Victorian marriage and what it can do to couples over the years.
