    Summary

    What was it that Fitzjames had that Francis didn’t that so endeared him to Franklin? Everything, clearly, Francis’ stomach curdling. Fitzjames was English. He was elegant, witty, charming. Francis’ tongue involuntarily touched his teeth, feeling the little gap, as opposed to Fitzjames’ handsome, mostly even smile.

    After the confrontation in the wardroom, Captain Crozier and Commander Fitzjames have it out, in more ways that one. But self-loathing and infatuation do not mix well, particularly in the Arctic.

    Summary

    Crozier foolishly believed that the first Magpie case he was consulted on would be solved by the time supper was ready. He swept into Sir John Barrow’s opulent home, been directed to the man’s private collection, observed the empty space where prized swords once hung, the letter pinned in their place, the feather that had fallen to the floor.
    “You’re not looking for a magpie, gentleman,” he announced in that tone which had prevented his advancement at Scotland Yard ) as he held the feather between his thumb and forefinger. “You’re looking for a peacock.”  

    The Magpie, dashing gentleman thief, has been running rampant all over London, robbing society of their treasures and delighting the masses with his daring and charm.

    Private Detective Francis Crozier intends to stop him.
