Publisher's Summary

When John Rawlings is asked to investigate a secret club and some shady goings-on, he is intrigued. The disreputable Sir Francis Dashwood is believed to be involved, as well as some illustrious members of the British aristocracy.

In disguise and accompanied by the ungainly Sam Swann, John befriends Sir Dashwood and gains access to his home and family, including someone from John's past, someone whose exceptional beauty still hypnotises him.

However, evil lurks in hidden corners of Sir Dashwood's opulent home and there seems to be a sinister element behind the infamous Hellfire Club's debaucheries. Is John putting himself and Sam in danger by trying to find out the truth?

    "Drivel....."

    Gave this one star as I think that is the minimum possible. I have given up on the listen halfway through. The story is simplistic and childish and all the characters are two dimensional and just plain silly. There is no real 'mystery' to the story and it is so ridiculous the way things just pan out that I was beginning to think that it was supposed to be a comedy, 'Carry On' style! However, even in this endeavour it totally fails. It seems the characters are based on the clich? of bumbling red faced wig wearing 18th century fools. I think the author may be trying to emulate Charles Dickens, unfortunately his story telling abilities are on another planet. Sorry to be so negative, but........
