This is the first in a great new series of Edwardian murder mysteries. Lady Rose Summer makes the perfect heroine and when her father brings in Captain Harry Cathcart to investigate her scoundrel of a fiancé it soon transpires it is not a suitor but a murderer that the two of them find themselves investigating. A brilliant new series from this well loved author.
After a brief and ill-advised dalliance with the Suffragette movement, Lady Rose Summer's debut season in London society turns out to be a complete disaster. Rose's father suspects that her fiance, Sir Geoffrey Blandon, is a first class scoundrel and calls in Captain Harry Cathcart to investigate. But when a malicious guest is found dead in suspicious circumstances, Rose becomes far more interested in discovering the truth than in landing a more appropriate suitor. As Harry and Rose begin to unravel this web of lies and rumours, a clever murderer sets out to make Rose's disastrous first season her last.

M. C. Beaton is the renowned bestselling author of the Hamish Macbeth and Agatha Raisin series. She has written many detective and romance novels alongside having an illustrious career on Fleet Street. Already a household name and, according to Anne Robinson, a ‘national treasure’, she is ranked among John Grisham and Maeve Binchy as a heavyweight of the publishing world. She divides her time between Paris and a village in the Cotswolds that is very much like Agatha's beloved Carsely.More About M. C. Beaton
