In A. J. Hartley’s newest Steeplejack adventure Firebrand, a dangerous secret, a murder among nobility, and missing immigrants are all in a day’s work for amateur sleuth Anglet Sutonga
Anglet Sutonga is moving up in the world, helping politician Josiah Willinghouse track down a thief who stole plans for a covert government weapon.
Finding him won’t be easy, not when the thief has connections to Elitus, the city’s most powerful and super-exclusive social club.
When someone gets murdered there, things definitely do not get any easier.
But more is at stake as the city’s recent wave of refugees start to vanish. When Ang connects these two cases, they spark a conflagration of conspiracy which threatens to engulf the city whole. Unless she can stop it.
