Author and lawyer Todd M. Johnson presents a mesmerizing legal thriller set in 1819 London that will appeal to fans of John Grisham, Charles Dickens, and Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. As a barrister, William Snopes defends the poor against the powerful—but that changes when a struggling heiress arrives at his door with a mystery surrounding a missing letter from the king’s regent and a merchant’s brig. As he digs deeper, he learns that the forces arrayed against them are even more perilous than he’d imagined.
