"Colin Pendragon's reputation as a brilliant detective is undisputed in Victorian London. But when murder strikes inside the closed ranks of Her Majesty's Guard, he must penetrate a wall of silence and secrecy to discover the dark truth. After a captain in Her Majesty's Guard and his young wife are brutally murdered in their flat, master sleuth Colin Pendragon and his partner Ethan Pruitt are summoned to Buckingham Palace. Major Hampstead demands discretion at all costs to preserve the reputation of the Guard and insists Pendragon participate in a cover-up by misleading the press. In response, Pendragon makes the bold claim that he will solve the case in no more than three days' time or he will oblige the major and compromise himself. Racing against the clock, and thwarted at every turn by their Scotland Yard nemesis, Inspector Varcoe, Pendragon and Pruitt begin to assemble the clues around the grisly homicide, probing into private lives and uncovering closely guarded secrets. As the minutes tick away, the pressure and the danger mounts as Pendragon's integrity is on the line and a cold-blooded killer remains on the streets"--page [4] of cover.

Not recommended. Casual violence & profanity, excessive use of ?!, historical inaccuracies, anachronistic language, annoying characters, limp plot. Even the gay Victorian background is thin.
