When Kit goes to a dance class she is hoping simply to take her mind off her studies.
Soon it looks like Joe, a stranger she meets there, might do more than that.
But when Kit uncovers a mystery involving the young Charles Dickens and the slaughter of a prostitute known as The Countess, she is sucked back in to the world of books, and discovers how Dickens became tangled up with this horrendous crime.
