    With her hands full raising her adopted children and managing her father’s financial empire, Martha Beale is also grieving the loss of her beau. Thomas Kelman, an assistant to the mayor, felt he could never belong in Martha’s upper-crust society and has boarded a merchant ship bound for South America. But the grisly discovery of a decapitated corpse on Joseph Bonaparte’s palatial estate outside of Philadelphia while Martha is visiting there will take the heiress far from her privileged world.
