Nell Bray investigates the death of her young cousin, who returned home from art school pregnant and on drugs, and discovers that the girl has been leading a double life as a friend to Bohemian anarchists and a spy for the secret service.

Blackwell North Amer
Verona North was all a girl should be at nineteen - talented, brave, and attractive, with the world opening out in front of her. But only a few months after leaving home to study art in London, she was found hanging in the family boathouse - dead from an apparent suicide.
It seems that their perfect daughter had plunged rapidly from respectability to drugs, depravity, and left-wing politics. To her father, a respectable naval officer, there is no doubt who's to blame: his cousin the suffragette, Nell Bray. Nell is sure she's not responsible, yet a sense of guilt at not having paid more attention to the young girl sets her on a trail to discover what really happened in the weeks leading up to Verona's death.
Nell's search takes her from an enclave of Bohemian anarchists in Chelsea to an old, run-down shop full of mysterious sea charts and maps. Piecing together clues, Nell soon discovers that Verona was leading a double life full of dangerous secrets. Was her death really a suicide, or a cover-up for murder?
