    Lost in the mists of the Romney Marsh, Angela Marchmont stumbles upon the body of a woman whose face has been disfigured - presumably to prevent recognition. Who is she, and what was she doing out there in the middle of nowhere? The search for answers will take Angela from a grand stately home to London's most fashionable - and disreputable - nightclub, and into a murky world of illegal drinking, jazz music, and lost souls.
