It's Christmas morning, chill and bright, and Bess Rowland steps out to sweep the front steps of snow only to find a dead lordling sprawled across her mistress's stoop, beaten bloody and holding what appears to be a dead wren. It isn't long before she has even more company: Besides a mysterious body, a Bow Street Runner by the name of Jim Watt appears, this address in hand, wondering if he's too late -- but for what? An unexpected suitor for Kitty's favours comes knocking -- but Kitty's career will be in ruins if rumour of this dead body gets out... What is the significance of the wren? Can Bess remove the body, help Watt solve his mystery, sort out the suitor, keep Kitty safe, and maybe find a little romantic intrigue of her own, all without burning Christmas dinner?
