TROUBLE REACHES OUT TO LADY ADELAIDE FROM ACROSS THE OCEANS.
Lady Adelaide Azalea Margaret de Morville, Mrs. Hugh Becket, English peer and British intelligence agent, receives an unexpected letter from her dear friend Isa Hass in the Cape Colony, which sends her dashing to Cape Town to confirm her suspicions about Isa and the death of Adele’s husband, three years ago.
Spy master William Melville insists that Daniel Bannister, Lord Leighton, accompany her. Adele complies, even though she resents Leighton’s company, for their nascent relationship ran aground some weeks before.
Adele’s return to Cape Town elicits memories both bitter and sweet, and unlocks the secrets surrounding her friend Isa, provoking a violent and deadly response from the shadowy figures who resent that exposure…
THE INDECENT AGENT, the seventh Edwardian era espionage story in the Adelaide Becket series by historical romance author Tracy Cooper-Posey.
