A dying woman investigates the loss of one of her long-dead husband's antique dueling pistols and finds answers to a puzzle that has haunted her for many years. The book is a murder mystery, but more importantly, a search for the truth. As Rachel Matson is almost completely paralyzed she uses her many photo albums and the help of her nurse to solve the mystery. The book is almost completely dialogue driven, and a masterly portrayal of a certain type of British "gentlewoman" that almost certainly no longer exists.
