When the marchioness is found murdered
at Polbrook mansion, the Dowager Lady Polbrook's new
companion, Ottilia Draycott, finds herself in a house of
strangers and every one of them a suspect. Only she can
unmask and outwit a desperate killer and keep a Polbrook
family secret buried.
Never underestimate the resolve of a lady’s companion.
She’s a woman of incomparable cunning, insatiable curiosity,
and as unfailingly attentive to her duties, as she is to the
intricacies of murder in… The Gilded Shroud
Pity the chambermaid who found the body—sprawled across a
disheveled four-poster bed with a bruised neck revealing a
grim truth: poor Emily, wife of the Marquis of Polbrook, had
been strangled in the night. The last thing Emily’s
brother-in-law, Lord Francis Fanshawe, expects to find so
soon after the crime is an adept investigator already
settled comfortably in the Polbrook mansion.
She is Ottilia Draycott, the Dowager Lady Polbrook’s new
young companion, intelligent, resourceful, observant, and
the family’s hope in establishing the innocence of the
Marquis, despite a motive: he wished Emily gone. But as
Ottilia pieces together a picture of Emily’s death,
complications arise: the Marquis has gone missing, along
with the theft of a priceless heirloom.
Now Ottilia has found herself in a house of strangers and
every one of them a suspect. And only she can unmask and
outwit a killer too desperate not to replay the murderous
events of that fateful night to keep a family secret buried.
