This story is set in London, during Queen Victoria’s rule. Barker and Llewelyn are "private enquiry" specialists that have a wide net of contacts and not particularly loved by the Scotland Yard. It is told through the perspective of Llewelyn who along with Baker is tasked with protecting Prince Nicolas.

While this book immerses us into the Victorian society and all of the political entanglements involved (including one or two affairs), it did not personally intrigue me or motivate me to keep on reading.
