But when he finds a coded letter on Lena―a code that matches one he saw on a fire-bombing suspect―he realizes she's in trouble. To protect her, he must seduce the truth from her.With London on the brink of revolution, Lena and Will must race against time―and an automaton army―to stop the humanist plot before it's too late.
