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 ladyâ€™s companion.
Sheâ€™s a woman of incomparable cunning, insatiable curiosity,
and as unfailingly attentive to her duties, as she is to the
intricacies of murder inâ€¦ The Gilded Shroud
Pity the chambermaid who found the bodyâ€”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 Emilyâ€™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 Polbrookâ€™s new
young companion, intelligent, resourceful, observant, and
the familyâ€™s hope in establishing the innocence of the
Marquis, despite a motive: he wished Emily gone. But as
Ottilia pieces together a picture of Emilyâ€™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.
