For police investigator Aristide Ravel, the teeming streets and alleyways of Paris are a constant source of activity. And in the unruly climate of 1797, when gold and food are scarce, citizens will stop at very little to get what they need.

When Jeannette Moineau, an illiterate servant girl, is accused of poisoning the master of the house, Ravel cannot believe she is guilty. With the odds stacked heavily against her, Ravel is relieved to find an unexpected ally in Laurence, a young widow of the house with a surprising past.

In a household brimming with bickering and resentment, everyone seems to have a motive for poisoning old Martin Dupont. Though as the death toll rises, the list of suspects rapidly dwindles. Tensions rise as Ravel and Laurence must probe the secrets of the city's craftiest citizens to clear Jeannette's name. But finding information in dissolute, post-revolutionary Paris can lead to costly and dangerous demands.

A historical mystery set amongst the sights and sounds of 18th-century Paris. Brimming with atmosphere, scandal and murder.

The sequel to A Game of Patience.
