A serial killer is on the loose in Hanbury and Underwood is in the unenviable position of knowing that it is his own past detective adventures that have provoked the killing spree. Someone is out to revenge themselves on him by killing those who mean something to him.
To add to his burden, his wife Verity is suffering a difficult pregnancy and is confined to bed for the duration. His brother Gil is risking his career by falling in love with a Roman Catholic and his old tutor has inflicted himself on the family for a long visit.
As if he didn’t have enough to contend with a vivacious young woman called Lady Cara Lovell, daughter of an Earl, has decided to pass the time by indulging in a flirtation with Underwood; he is totally clueless but the rest of Hanbury is scandalised. When they are both abducted and held prisoner in the limestone caves above the town, it is assumed they have eloped leaving poor Verity about to give birth and unaware that she has been abandoned.
Facing his most difficult challenge yet, Underwood has to save Lady Cara, bring the murderer to justice and get back to his wife before she hears the rumours of his infidelity, but only a fool would wander the labyrinthine caves without a guide.
Will Underwood survive to see his first child born safely?
