Destiny brings three peculiar households together in the placid English countryside. The desire for money and romance drives these Victorians beyond the natural boundaries of their middle class lives. As the web of lust and deceit draws these accidental neighbors ever closer. A financial scandal befalls one of them.
An outside "rank pirate" is linked somehow to one of the neighbors. Who could it be? In this work Doyle exhibits the practiced subtlety and complexity for which he has become so well known.
He must have known or noticed something before he would speak upon such a subject. And then again Mrs. Westmacott had herself said that she hoped to change her style of living shortly and take over completely new duties. What could that mean except that she expected to marry? And whom? She seemed to see few friends outside their own little circle. She must have alluded to her father. It was a hateful thought, and yet it must be faced.
