But upon their return it appears that a mysterious portrait and a child’s nursery rhyme link vivacious Peg to a bawdy old seamstress who resided near London Bridge and was quite literally scared to death.The old woman’s murder is but one thread in a web of conspiracy that includes blackmail, court intrigue, and an underground club that has made a hobby out of murder. With Peg’s life at stake, Wynne will do everything he can to trace the diabolical connection between the two women—and resist falling in love.
