The first entry of the Bertie Prince of Wales mystery series, featuring future King Edward VII, Albert Edward, as an amateur sleuth solving suspicious murders in Victorian England. Bertie, Prince of Wales and future King Edward VII, is a charismatic but self-indulgent man who enjoys the finer things in life, including dining, flirting, and flitting from party to party with his entire thirty-person staff in tow. But the fun and games come to a tragic halt when Bertie hears the shocking news that his friend the legendary jockey Fred Archer, known as the Tinman, has taken his own life. When the jury finds that the Tinman's suicide was caused by a bout of typhoid fever, Bertie has his doubts, especially considering the Tinman's ominous final words: "Are they coming?" In order to discover the truth, Bertie resolves to become a detective himself, looking for new suspects and evidence on a quest that will take him through some of the most disreputable parts of London, much to the dismay of his mother, Queen Victoria. Bertie's nosy disposition is useful in discovering information, but using his findings to solve the case might prove to be harder than he had anticipated.
