From the Publisher:
No one is more popular on London's champagne-and-cavier circuit than charming Lord Gospell. However, on the morning after the year's most glittering ball, someone find a reason to asphiyxiate "Bunchy" Gospell in a taxi headed across town. Scotland Yard's Inspector roderick Alleyn is called in to find out who killed his old friend, and to cleaverly unwind a tangle of murky secrets that began far from the ballroom floor.
