After a brilliant military career, esteemed General Thaddeus Carlyon finally meets his death not in the frenzy of battle but at an elegant London dinner party. His demise appears to be the result of a freak accident, but the general's wife, Alexandra, readily confesses that she killed him-- a story she clings to even under the threat of the noose.
