In London, Blythe Marden sets out on an errand for her employer and finds herself entangled in the escape of a man about to be hanged. Unjustly accused and convicted of murder, actor Simon Woodley needs Blythe's help to escape. Fate draws the two into an unexpected adventure, and Blythe finds she quite likes the exciting turn her life has taken. But danger and treachery threaten, and as Simon tries to protect Blythe--even from himself--he only falls deeper in love with her, as she does with him. Unraveling the true reason behind the murder leads Simon to long-hidden secrets and the mystery of his birth.

Kingsley spins a well-crafted tale with fresh characters and a fascinating view of the theater in old England. Readers will cheer with satisfaction when proper Blythe evolves into a satisfyingly dashing heroine, more than a match for dangerous Simon.
