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.

Snobbery with Violence Synopsis

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.

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.
