Lucien (Lucy) Minor is the resident odd duck in the bucolic hamlet of Bury. Friendless and loveless, he is a compulsive liar and a weakling. When Lucy accepts employment assisting the majordomo of the remote, foreboding castle of the Baron Von Aux, he meets thieves, madmen, aristocrats, and a puppy.
Thus begins a tale of polite theft, bitter heartbreak, domestic mystery and cold-blooded murder....
