Young Sybil Turpin is an innkeeper who caters for the unsavoury  underworld of 18th Century London. When she gets involved in a fiendish plot about spies and political intrigue her life is suddenly in danger from the most ruthless of men. This thrilling novel plunges the reader back to the year 1720 when the government of Prime Minister Robert Walpole was overwelmed by a criminal scandal which threatened to bankrupt the country. The truth behind the intrigue has never fully come out. The novel is based on those events, weaving a masterful tale of romance,violence and tumult around the few known facts.

When Gordon Drake’s old army buddy turns up in Langford Quay, it is the beginning of a new adventure for the Steward and his friends. The community become embroiled in international espionage, despite the best efforts of the British Government and its Secret Services to prevent them. Gordon, Felicity, and their pals thwart foreign agents, uncover a sleeping mole, turn a spy, rescue an MI5 agent, decode secret messages, and capture a high level diplomat. There are new characters – a Lithuanian pastry cook, a librarian with a photographic memory and a six fingered gambler.

 

When a tolerant but grateful nation shows its appreciation, Gordon is underwhelmed.
