Mystery Woman Sleuth
For everyone who loves Jane Austen...a marvelously
entertaining new series that turns the incomparable author
into an extraordinary sleuth!
On a visit to the
estate of her friend, the young and beautiful Isobel
Payne, Countess of Scargrave, Jane bears witness to a
tragedy. Isobel's husbandâ€”a gentleman of mature yearsâ€”is
felled by a mysterious and agonizing ailment. The Earl's
death seems a cruel blow of fate for the newly married
Isobel. Yet the bereaved widow soon finds that it's only
the beginning of her misfortune...as she receives a
sinister missive accusing her and the Earl's nephew of
adulteryâ€”and murder. Desperately afraid that the letter
will expose her to the worst sort of scandal, Isobel begs
Jane for help. And Jane finds herself embroiled in a
perilous investigation that will soon have her following a
trail of clues that leads all the way to Newgate Prison
and the House of Lordsâ€”a trail that may well place Jane's
own person in the gravest jeopardy.
