Publisher Comments:

Regency England, August 1812: Sebastian St. Cyr’s plans to escape the heat of London for a honeymoon with his new bride, Hero Jarvis, are shattered when the murdered body of Hero’s good friend Gabrielle Tennyson is discovered drifting in a battered boat at the site of a long-vanished castle known as Camlet Moat. Missing and also presumed dead are Gabrielle’s two young cousins. 
 
Still struggling to define the nature of their new marriage, Sebastian and Hero find themselves occasionally working at cross-purposes as their investigation uncovers dark secrets at the heart of the Tennyson family and an enigmatic young French lieutenant who is concealing mysteries of his own.
 
Sebastian and Hero’s race to unmask a ruthless killer and unravel the puzzle of the missing children puts both their lives and their growing love for each other at risk as they’re threatened by powerful men in high places…and by a tall, dark stranger who may hold the key to Sebastian’s own parentage.

Review:

"Set in August 1812, Harris's intriguing seventh Regency whodunit featuring aristocratic sleuth Sebastian St. Cyr (after 2011's Where Shadows Dance) marks a return to form. St. Cyr has just married Hero Jarvis, the fiercely capable daughter of his bitterest enemy, Charles, Lord Jarvis, a cousin of the Prince Regent and the power behind the throne. The stabbing murder of Hero's antiquarian friend, Gabrielle Tennyson, who was studying excavations at Camlet Moat in Trent, disrupts the newlyweds' honeymoon plans. That Camlet Moat and the legendary Camelot may be one and the same is a more-than-academic point at a time when radicals are 'calling for King Arthur to return... and save Britain from the benighted rule of the House of Hanover.' The couple pursue their investigations separately, at the risk of their fragile new relationship. Established fans will best appreciate the personal convolutions, but newcomers will have no trouble keeping up. Agent: Helen Breitwieser, Cornerstone Literary."

Laura Cheshire, January 3, 2013 (view all comments by Laura Cheshire)
I picked up this book on the library new books shelf on a whim. I think the cover art talked me into it. I have never liked books set in the regency period, damning them all as "bodice rippers". But this one was amazing. It is historically accurate (I was an English history major in college), a detective murder mystery that kept me guessing, with an intruiging main character (yellow eyes?), more action that I expected, and a tinge of the oddest romance story I've ever read. All in all a great read that left me wanting to know more about Lord Devlin. Now I have all of the books in the series, and can't wait for the next one.
