Ena shook off the memories of those days and looked down at the River Thames. It was deep and dark and held more secrets than the British intelligence and security services, which she'd grown to despise...
Ena Dudley's new office is a welcome change from her past life investigating wartime spies. Now a private investigator at Dudley Green Associates, she delves into the secrets lurking within London's underbelly. Despite her husband and sisters' advice to steer clear of the city and its bad memories, Ena feels she is exactly where she is needed.

As Ena looks at the evidence surrounding the stolen masterpiece, she uncovers a string of art thefts targeting London's renowned galleries. The police suspect a dangerous gang may be involved.
Ena, accompanied by her husband, Henry, attends an art exhibition where she witnesses a violent confrontation in the street outside. As Ena begins to unlock the mystery around the painting, some familiar faces from her time in British intelligence begin to come back into her life.
