In a world of artifice and guile, how are we to judge whose behaviour is beyond reproach? A marriage has been arranged between Cynthia and Mellefont and all should be plain sailing. But at a house party on a sultry autumn evening, the young couple must contend with the jealousies, vanities and vagaries of the other guests. Above all they must overcome the Machiavellian machinations of Maskwell – the eponymous Double Dealer.
