When Countess Zorah Rostova asks London barrister Sir Oliver Rathbone to defend her against a charge of slander--that the prince of her homeland was murdered by his wife--he is astonished to find himself accepting. Now private investigator William Monk and his friend Hester Latterly journey to Venice in an attempt verify the countess's claims, and though the two manage to establish that the prince was indeed murdered, as events unfold the likeliest suspect seems to be Countess Zorah herself.

Rathbone, having just earned a title from the Queen, could lose everything by taking on a case he shouldn't. Monk and Hester help pull him out of the hole he's gotten himself into. While sometimes Hester is slipped into a nursing position to help solve a case, here she has gotten a position on her own, which turns out to be related to Rathbone's case. As usual, there is a moral to the story. A neatly done story, with the typical spats among Rathbone, Monk, and Hester.

Perry's writing is generally great, but this book seems to lack conhesion in places. Still, a good, tense plot, and interesting story.
