New York City 1870's. After paying off my gambling debts my husband is packing off to an insane asylum.
At home with a good book and the cat...
...is the only place I want to be

Me,too!
Poor Hugh. It seems he was his own worst enemy. I've wanted to slap some sense into him several times.

It is 1244 and I'm Gruffudd ap Llewelyn (Llewelyn's ap G's dad) and I'm in the Tower of London. Although I've gained a few pounds in captivity, I think it would be cool to make a rope of the bed sheets and scale down the Tower walls from my window, so I can go and claim my Welsh Prince heritage! Oops!! Bad idea!

In the blacked-out streets of wartime London, investigating the death of a Polish refugee landgirl, murdered by a jewel thief serial killer.
(somewhat safer than confronting a horde of ravening Welshmen or trying to escape from the Tower...)
