(The first book in the Edward Tyrington Mystery series)
A novel by

A destitute gentleman, an unusual woman, and a Victorian murder mystery that may kill them both

Suez Canal Egypt and Santorini Greece, 1863: Edward Tyrington did not intend to meet the unusual Miss Briggs over the body of a murdered man, but nothing had gone according to plan since his father squandered the family fortune and abruptly died. The poverty that followed forced him to leave London and take a position as the Chief Archaeologist with the Suez Canal Company.

When another man is murdered, this time at his archaeological excavation, suspicion turns to him. Thus begins his turbulent alliance with Catherine Briggs, who proves to be both reckless, and cunning in her efforts to clear his name. With corrupt police and international forces in play, time is running out to catch the murderer. If they fail, Edward will either be the next victim, or the man who will hang for the crimes.
