When a marriage proposal appears imminent for the beautiful - if rebellious - Lady Rose Summer, her father wants to know if her suitor's intentions are honorable. He calls on Captain Harry Cathcart, the impoverished younger son of a baron, to do some intelligence work on the would-be fiance, Sir Geoffrey Blandon.

But when Harry is caught between his client's desire for discretion and his suspicion that murder may have been committed, he enlists the help of Superintendent Kerridge of the Scotland Yard and Lady Rose herself. Download and start listening now!

    " This author is M.C. Beaton (my favorite author) writing under a different name. This series is set in the early 1800's (?) in England. It is interesting to read about life at that time - especially when comparing it to Rhys Bowen's historical mysteries. But this author is much more engaging. Very well written, fun little mysteries. "

    " Another good mystery by Marion Chesney but I didn't like it quite as much as Sick of Shadows. Now I have to get Hasty Death from the library. "

    " Although this is the first book in Chesney's Victorian Murder Mystery series, I read it after book one, Hasty Death. I liked this one better probably because I got to know the characters better. Lady Rose is a Victorian era debutante being forced to live the proper life of a lady, when she really wants to toss the corset and multilayers of clothing and go to work as a typist. Her parents are beside themselves and are threatening to send her to India. Lady Rose is invited to Telby Castle along with other debutantes who are having trouble finding acceptable suitors. While there, 3 murders occur and Lady Rose, her maid Daisy, Captain Cathcart and his man Beckett go about solving the crimes. Along the way we learn about Victorian practices such as putting lead based powder on one's face and the many uses of arsenic. "
