SYNOPSIS:  “The year is 1792 and winter hangs heavy in Berkeley Square.

As the city sleeps, the night-watchman keeps a cautious eye over the streets, and another eye on the back doors of the great and the good.  Then in the darkness he comes across the body of Pierre Renard, the local silversmith, lying dead, his throat cut and his valuables missing.
