London, 1732. William Hogarth made a terrible error of judgment. He painted the Prince of Wales leaving a prostitute's bed. A pregnant prostitute. And now she's been killed. Hogarth has been warned. The only thing the girl's killers don't know is her child had been born – and Hogarth saw to it that he survived...
This powerful secret – and the painting that proves it – has been protected by Sir Oliver Peters' family for centuries, for Queen and country. But now it's been stolen – on his watch.
He heard the rumour about where it was, but he's not the only one, and as the others are brutally murdered in quick succession, Peters is in a deadly race against time – and some very dangerous people – to find it before it's too late.
A legacy never means more than when it's written in blood...
