Arthur Penhaligon, Rightful Heir to the House and Secondary Realms beyond, has been systematically freeing the seven parts of the Will of the Architect and wresting the seven Keys to the Kingdom from the sinful Trustees. Now he must find the fifth part of the Will and claim the fifth Key. Lady Friday, mistress of the Middle House, has publicly abdicated, and is now hiding in her retreat in the Secondary Realms, fulfilling her endless longing for mortal experience. She seems willing to give up the Key to whoever reaches her Scriptorium first - but is it all just a trap? As Arthur races to assume control of the Middle House, his friend Leaf is trapped in the retreat itself, desperately trying to save her Aunt Mango from the lust of Lady Friday.
Four of the seven Trustees have been defeated and their Keys taken, but for Arthur, the week is still getting worse. Suzy Blue and Fred Gold Numbers have been captured by the Piper, and his New Nithling army still controls most of the Great Maze. Superior Saturday is causing trouble wherever she can, including turning off all the elevators in the House and blocking the Front Door.
Amidst all this trouble, Arthur must weigh an offer from Lady Friday that is either a cunning trap for the Rightful Heir or a golden opportunity he must seize--before he's beaten to it!
