Camilla Randall makes the mistake of responding to an Amazon review of one of her etiquette guides and sets off a chain of events that leads to arson, attempted rape and murder. Her best friend Plantagenet Smith is accused of the murder and nobody but her shady former boyfriend Peter Sherwood—fresh from a Tasmanian prison—can save him.

Camilla and Plant are caught between rival factions of historical reenactors who are fiercely pro or anti-Richard III. Set against the backdrop of Richard's re-burial in Leicester in 2015, the book is an exploration of the power of false rumors as well as a satire of the Internet communities whose "flame wars" sometimes spill into real life.
