    A rabble-rouser for justice, Sophie's latest mission is to fight for the rights of the poor, the wretched - and the employees at Madame Hartley's brothel. She's not concerned about the criminals who will cross her path, for Sophie has mastered the art of deception - including the art of wearing trousers. Now her fate is in her own hands along with a loaded gun. All she needs is instruction on how to shoot it. But only one person can help her: Lord Quint, the man who broke her heart years ago.
