In dark, dreary Victorian England, a man seeks revenge at all costs against the person that destroyed his life. Amongst the foggy streets of London and the drizzle-dampened grounds of great country manors, the novel takes the form of a confession by a man named Edward Glyver of all that he has done to exact retribution upon the odious Phoebus Daunt, While Daunt has achieved a prominent status in society because of his oily guile and handsome looks, Glyver discovers truths about his real identity that unearths Daunt's treachery: that Daunt is stealing his inheritance. While meeting a woman and falling desperately in love with her, Glyver plots the ultimate revenge. These tumultuous parts of Glyver's life collide in a manner that he never expected, and will lead him to contemplate the unthinkable: murder.
