This book in the Sir John Fielding series is rather complex and reveals the British attitude toward and knowledge about the "colonies". A series of murders involving woven leather ropes and a man with many names crosses paths with the succession to a fortune from the Laningham estate, which was the subject of the previous book. Jeremy gets kidnapped and narrowly escapes being killed, he and Sir John travel to Bath and Oxford, and the Lord Chief Justice joins forces with Sir John to foil the plotters of greed and violence.

From the title, I wondered if this author had another series, but it is another of the exciting Sir John Fielding stories.
