Amethyst Forester is a scientist, not a lady.
Benjamin Maker is a lord, trapped in a loveless marriage.
The only thing they have in common is Professor Richards – genius aetheric scientist and mutual friend.
When Richards is found dead, Forester and Maker are put in an impossible situation, jointly inheriting his house, its contents – and the mystery of his murder.
Could the Professor have been killed for one of his experiments? And if so, what if someone’s still looking for it?
