Lady Montfort has been planning her annual summer costume
ball for months, and with scrupulous care. Pulling together
the food, flowers and a thousand other details for one of
the most significant social occasions of the year is her
happily accepted responsibility. But when her husbandâ€™s
degenerate nephew is found murdered, it's more than the ball
that is ruined. In fact, Lady Montfort fears that the
official police enquiry, driven by petty snobbery and class
prejudice, is pointing towards her son as a potential suspect.
Taking matters into her own hands, the rather
over-imaginative countess enlists the help of her pragmatic
housekeeper, Mrs. Jackson, to investigate the case, track
down the women that vanished the night of the murder, and
clear her sonâ€™s name. As the two women search for a runaway
housemaid and a headstrong young woman, they unearth the
hidden lives of Lady Montfortâ€™s close friends, servants and
family and discover the identity of a murderer hiding in
In this enchanting debut sure to appeal to fans of Downton
Abbey, Tessa Arlen draws readers into a world exclusively
enjoyed by the rich, privileged classes and suffered by the
men and women who serve them. Death of a Dishonorable
Gentleman is an elegant mystery filled with intriguing
characters and fascinating descriptions of Edwardian lifeâ€”a
superb treat for those who love British novels.
