When Dido Twite sets foot back on English soil, more mischief awaits. As her friend Captain Hughes recovers from a carriage accident, Dido stays at the Dogkennel Cottages and meets the odd inhabitants of Tegleaze Manor: strange old Lady Tegleaze, her nephew, Tobit, and his wizened, witchy nurse, Sannie. Soon suspicious things happen. A priceless miniature is stolen. Tobit is framed and then kidnapped. A twin sister is found. And when Dido catches a glimpse of her rascally father in Petworth, she is sure she’s in the midst of another Hanoverian plot. Can she get to London to warn the king and save St. Paul's Cathedral from sliding into the Thames?

The adventures of Dido Twite continue in this installment of the Wolves of Willhoughby Chase series. Dido is back on British soil, but a carriage accident strands her in the middle of nowhere. Now she must evade the clutches of two sinister witches and the evil Miles Mystery, while she attempts to deliver a message to the King and foil a heinous assassination attempt. Fortunately, she has assistance in the form of goodhearted smugglers, who are willing to leave off their business of smuggling perfume and corkscrews in order to save England.
