Seven Dials

Pitt, now the mainstay of Her Majesty’s Special Branch, is summoned to Connaught Square mansion where the body of a junior diplomat lies huddled in a wheelbarrow. Nearby stands the tenant of the house, the beautiful and notorious Egyptian woman, Ayesha Zakhari, who falls under the shadow of suspicion. Pitt’s orders are to protect at all costs the good name of the third person in the garden, senior cabinet minister, Saville Ryerson. Pitt’s journey takes him to Alexandria and back to London, to the slums of Seven Dials, and to a packed court room where shocking secrets are revealed…
