Abstract:

Across the still, dark English Channel come the smugglers. But tonight they carry an unusual cargo: a coffin. Several miles inland, a respected banker holds a birthday party for his wife. Within days, one of the guests is found shot dead. What links this apparently senseless killing to the smugglers lurking in the mists along the Kent coast? And who was in the mysterious coffin? Reverend Hardcastle and Mrs Chaytor find themselves drawn into the worlds of high finance and organised crime in the perilous world of Georgian England.
