This is the 8th episode in the second season of Tremontaine, a 13-episode serial from Serial Box Publishing. This episode written by Racheline Maltese and Paul Witcover.
Micah and Rafe journey to Highcombe—by way of the Heslop farm—to rescue Will. But intrigues at Highcombe, where madness may be catching, threaten to throw their plan off course.
Welcome to Tremontaine, where ambition, love affairs, and rivalries dance with deadly results. A Duchess whose beauty is matched only by her cunning; a handsome young scholar with more passion than sense; a foreigner in a playground of swordplay and secrets; and a mathematical genius whose discoveries herald revolution when games of politics begin, no one is safe. Keep your wit as sharp as your steel in this world where politics is everything, and outcasts are the tastemakers.
