It is 1901 and the Yorkshire aristocracy is determined to enjoy the excesses of the new century.
When one of the host's sons is found with a shotgun wound to his chest and a beautiful young woman goes missing, Cairn delves deep into family secrets, lies and intrigue in an attempt to solve the mystery.
