Returning from a continental honeymoon with his new wife, Lady Jane, Lex is asked by a colleague in Parliament to consult in the murder of a footman, bludgeoned to death with a brick. His investigation uncovers some unsettling facts about the family he served and a strange, second identity that the footman himself cultivated.Going into the boxing clubs and public houses, the Mayfair mansions and servants' quarters of Victorian London, Lex gradually realizes that an old friend may be implicated in the footman's death. Soon a suspect is arrested, but Lex has his doubts.
