Friends have mysteriously died, others have been financially ruined and his marriage is falling apart. Many in the city are angry about the racial mix of their future king. Some want him removed, permanently. Suddenly, Lord Ian’s business ventures sour and he finds himself caught up in a bizarre entanglement.
