Lady Kiri Lawford is the daughter of a duke and an Indian woman, putting her in the unusual position of being very high ranking socially, but something of an outcast due to her mixed racial heritage. She was raised in India with her mother and stepfather, a general, and only recently came to England to find a husband. Kiri is a rather feisty young woman, and decides it is in her best interests to leave immediately, lest she kill someone.
But on her way back to London, she comes across a band of smugglers who kidnap her and are debating the merits of raping her, ransoming her, or just killing her outright, when she is rescued by Damian Mackenzie, the illegitimate but beloved half-brother of a baron, owner of a well known club, and man with a questionable past.
Kiri is enchanted, though, and goes to his club incognito to repay the ransom he paid to rescue her. But instead she stumbles upon a plot to kidnap Princess Charlotte and kill much of the royal family. Due to her unique olfactory skills in recognizing the kidnappers, she is thrust into the world of spying along with Mackenzie.
Some of my favorite books by Mary Jo Putney feature espionage. Her spy novels have a touch of realism that I appreciate; spying is not all midnight break-ins and dashing sword fights, instead one must be nondescript and observant and hope to chance upon a needle in a haystack.
The role of luck and the frequently mundane nature of espionage are emphasized — even while there are a few dust-ups to keep things interesting. Lady Kiri is a fun character, feisty and sassy though I wonder about how well chaperoned she was in India, given all the anecdotal stories she tells about spending time with soldiers.
