Lively Jacintha Fleming runs a clothes shop in the country from a converted barn. Up in London for the day buying stock from rag trade wholesalers, she wanders into an old churchyard and discovers an epitaph immortalising a notorious seventeeth century highwayman and womaniser, Claude Du Vall. The epitaph is so tantalising that she decides to find out all she can about him.
