The China Governess
Troubles, the man said, come in battalions, and Timothy Kinnit would concur. The golden sprig of a rich and aristocratic family, Timothy is about to marry the girl of his dreams. But when rumors start to circulate about his parentage, the young lady’s father puts the kibosh on the wedding, and shortly thereafter, Timothy becomes the chief suspect first in a housebreaking and then in a suspicious death. Mr. Campion is happy to look into the problem, but then it gets a good deal worse: somebody, it seems, is willing to go to some very ugly lengths to keep Timothy from finding the answers he needs.
