This text takes the reader into the era of social and political change in England in 1909-1910. The suffragette movement and the arrival of the motor car are changing traditional ways of thinking and living. Lady Hardcastle and Flo are surrounded by an expanding collection of adversaries and allies from varied classes and occupations as they solve two intertwined cases. This novel also broadens the focus from country village life to an urban environment and is a welcome example of their individual skills when they are confronted by an intricate international and financial crime.
