“Great power lies in learning who you are.” ~ Christmas 1814.
Julian, Lord Trevelin (a.k.a. Trev), is still smarting over his renewed ostracizing when he and Mrs. S. attend a country house party. He wonders why he has been invited, as his hostess is unknown to him, and soon learns some of the guests are, unfortunately, not. The remainder are considered to be the dregs of society.
Suspecting that his cousin, Evelyn, has fresh miseries in store, he is both astonished and grateful when his private ghost, Willy, shows up. Also in attendance is Jack, his young valet, whose extreme loyalty and lack of decorum make him the perfect ally to discover who dispatched the vilest in their midst with the wassail bowl. It appears to be a crime of passion and all have a compelling motive. However, Trev suspects there is more at play.
With a murderer on the loose in the snowbound house and Trev’s cousin insisting they take punishment into their own hands, it becomes a race against time to learn the identity of the killer before the vigilantes hang the one locked up for the crime: Trev.
