London 1699. Countess Ashby de la Zouche and her maid, the faithful Alpiew, are dashing around, plying their trade as scandal-mongers. Happily, scandals are falling in their laps like ripe plums.

Amidst an ever-changing cast of actors, hooligans, servants, noblemen, and lunatics, the identity of the murderer remains a true mystery until the end.
