Summary
To solve a long-forgotten crime, a professor challenges the devil in this nefariously puzzling, romantic tale from the Golden Age master of mystery fiction An aging scholar of Restoration history, Nicholas Fenton has long dreamed of traveling into the past. He has a date in mind--May 10, 1675--as well as a purpose: to solve the murder case of the woman he loves, his rakehell ancestor's lovely wife. Obsessed with delivering her from danger, he turns to an unlikely accomplice: the devil. After striking a bargain with the prince of darkness, Fenton awakens in the seventeenth century in the much-younger body of dashing Sir Nick Fenton. In an era when gentlemen died by the blade, Fenton is handy with a rapier, and his knowledge of local history gives him a leg up on the swashbucklers who would have his hide. But while his sword may help him rescue his beloved, it will take more than that to save his soul. Even in 1675, the devil is in the details
