A young woman disappears. A husband is suspected of murder. Stirring times for all the neighborhood.
After a humiliating Season, Hester Perceval hid away and concentrated on stimulating her intellect–since her heart was broken! Indeed, Hester was a beautiful genius who cracked codes and solved puzzles, arousing the interest of a pen pal, "Zeno." When she discovered her enigmatic correspondent was Robert, Lord Dungarron–the man who had caused her shame during her Season–she took flight. But Robert found her and convinced Hester to help him uncover a devious plot. And as they toiled over codes and puzzles, they began to discover an overpowering love that defied all reason.
