Captain Ian Bell is a tortured man fighting through grief and guilt over the loss of his sister. When she went missing, he searched for months until he found her remains. Now, three years later as the Deputy Lieutenant of Fife, Ian still hunts for her murderer in the dangerous criminal underworld of Edinburgh. He is the ‘Night Watch’ bent on revenge even as he saves others from the same violent fate that claimed his sister. Then one night, a young woman narrowly escapes death and lands at his feet...his late sister’s best friend, Phoebe Pennington. Lady Phoebe Pennington—dreamer and storyteller to her family—is a committed reformer writing articles anonymously for an Edinburgh newspaper. One night, in an effort to acquire documents embarrassing to the city’s political leaders, Phoebe descends into the corrupt and seething netherworld known as the Vaults. When she tries to save a street urchin from an assailant, she becomes the target of a violent attack, only to be saved by the one man she has desired for years.

Phoebe’s blood burns for Ian, but when she learns that he may be implicated in the scandal she is set on exposing, she finds herself torn between love and truth. But even as they strive to find the meaning of trust, fate is taking a hand. For Phoebe is the only one who has seen the face of the killer, and the sinister shadows of evil are closer than they imagine.

In this stunning series starter by USA Today bestselling author May McGoldrick, meet the new generation of Penningtons...five brothers and sisters of passion and privilege. Enter their aristocratic world...where each will fight injustice and find love. Hugh Pennington—Viscount Greysteil, Lord Justice of the Scottish Courts, hero of the Napoleonic wars—is a grieving widower with a death wish. When he receives an expected crate from the continent, he is shocked to find a nearly dead woman inside. Her identity is unknown, and the handful of American coins and the precious diamond sown into her dress only deepen the mystery. Grace Ware is an enemy to the English crown. Her father, an Irish military commander of Napoleon’s defeated army. Her mother, an exiled Scottish Jacobite. When Grace took shelter in a warehouse, running from her father’s murderers through the harbor alleyways of Antwerp, she never anticipated bad luck to deposit her at the home of an aristocrat in the Scottish Borders. Baronsford is the last place she could expect to find safety, and Grace feigns a loss of memory to buy herself time while she recovers. Hugh is taken by her beauty, passion, and courage to challenge his beliefs and open his mind. Grace finds in him a wounded man of honor, proud but compassionate. When their duel of wits quickly turns to passion and romance, Grace’s fears begin to dissolve...until danger follows her to the very doors of Baronsford. For, unknown to either of them, Grace has in her possession a secret that will wreak havoc within the British government. Friend and foe are indistinguishable as lethal forces converge to tear the two lovers apart or destroy them both.

In seinem grandiosen Hauptwerk gelingt es Ford Madox Ford, große Figuren zu schaffen und an ihnen exemplarisch den Verfall einer jahrhundertealten Gesellschaft zu demonstrieren. Christopher Tietjens ist ein vermögender englischer Gentleman mit fast unmenschlicher Selbstbeherrschung – und so lässt er auch die Romanzen und Amouren seiner attraktiven Frau scheinbar ohne sichtbare Regung über sich ergehen. Doch je unnahbarer und kühler er sich gibt, desto perfider und demütigender die Versuche seiner Frau, die Maske der standesgemäßen Selbstlosigkeit zu zerbrechen ... England, unmittelbar vor Ausbruch des Ersten Weltkriegs: Christopher Tietjens ist ein perfekter englischer Gentleman mit nahezu unmenschlicher Selbstbeherrschung – zum Glück, denn andernfalls wäre er vermutlich schon längst zum Mörder geworden. Seine impulsive Frau Sylvia lässt keine Gelegenheit aus, ihn lächerlich zu machen, zu demütigen und zu erniedrigen. Ihr Furor gilt seiner standesgemäßen Selbstlosigkeit, seiner perfekt abgeschotteten Gefühlswelt – kurz: jener Englishness, die seinem Leben in einer immer intriganter und korrupter werdenden Umwelt Halt und Form gibt. Je unnahbarer er sich gibt, desto wütender wird Sylvia. Tietjens flieht in den Weltkrieg. Im Bombenhagel glaubt er sich in Sicherheit – aber Sylvia verstrickt ihn in einen fürchterlichen Zweifrontenkrieg. Band 1 der Tetralogie Ende der Paraden.
