The second case for Victorian sleuth Lord Francis Powerscourt.
Early one morning in 1897 a corpse with no head or hands is dragged out of the Thames by London Bridge. There are few clues to his identity and the police call on Lord Francis Powerscourt. Soon his investigation leads Lord Francis to a series of murders at the House of Harrison, a reputable German bank in the City. It seems somebody at the bank is staking out imprudent financial positions that could lead to a scandal of catastrophic proportions for the City. Young Wolfgang Harrison was educated with the Kaiser and shares his beliefs in the destiny and supremacy of the German race. Could he be planning a financial Gotterdammerung that would cripple the British Empire at its finest moment, the celebration of Queen Victoria's Diamond Jubilee?It is SIGNED by the author on the title page.
