Nothing is quite as it seems in Victorian high society, in the twisty and compelling new novel from the author of THE HOUSEKEEPERS...

A confidence scheme, when properly executed, will follow five movements in close and inviolable order:

I. The MarkII. The Intrusion. III. The Ballyhoo. IV. The Knot.V. All In.

There may be many counter-strikes along the way, for such is the nature of the game; it contains so many turns, so many endless possibilities...

1898. Quinn le Blanc, London's most talented con woman, has five days to pull off the seemingly impossible... to trap a nobleman into marriage - and lift a fortune from the richest family in England.

Styled as the season's most enviable debutante, Quinn enters the inner circle of the corrupt, charismatic Kendals. But as she finds herself increasingly drawn into their mysterious orbit, Quinn realises that she may not be the only one playing a game of high deception.
