"Best historical thriller writer in the business!"
Who Speaks for the Damned
The fifteenth Sebastian St. Cyr mystery
It's June 1814, and the royal families of Austria, Russia, and the German states have gathered in London at the Prince Regent's invitation to celebrate the defeat of Napoléon and the restoration of monarchical control throughout Europe. But the festive atmosphere is marred one warm summer evening by the brutal murder of a disgraced British nobleman long thought dead.
Eighteen years before, Nicholas Hayes, the third son of the late Earl of Seaford, was accused of killing a beautiful young French émigré and transported to Botany Bay for life. Even before his arrest, Hayes had been disowned by his father, and few in London were surprised when they heard the ne'er-do-well had died a convict in New South Wales. But those reports were obviously wrong. Recently Hayes returned to London with a mysterious young boy in tow—a child who vanishes shortly after Nicholas's body is discovered.
