"It is wonderful how men can keep secrets they have not been told."  Winston S. Churchill

It is 1894 and Winston Churchill is finishing his training at the Royal Military College, Sandhurst. Horses were a passion for the young cavalry officer until he found a body sprawled on the floor of the stable. No one recognizes the man but it is clear to Winston that the weapon may implicate someone at Sandhurst. The last thing Police Inspector Bert Rankings wants is to investigate a murder with a cocky cadet whose father is in the House of Commons, but he quickly realizes that young Churchill is able to navigate the nuances of high society better than he can. Winston finds himself thrust in the murky waters between the British Secret Service, a secret society in India, his military commander, the beautiful widow and the proclivities of the victim himself.
