Publisher Comments:

For everyone who loves Jane Austen...a marvelously entertaining new series that turns the incomparable author into an extraordinary sleuth!

On a visit to the estate of her friend, the young and beautiful Isobel Payne, Countess of Scargrave, Jane bears witness to a tragedy. Isobel's husband—a gentleman of mature years—is felled by a mysterious and agonizing ailment. The Earl's death seems a cruel blow of fate for the newly married Isobel. Yet the bereaved widow soon finds that it's only the beginning of her misfortune...as she receives a sinister missive accusing her and the Earl's nephew of adultery—and murder. Desperately afraid that the letter will expose her to the worst sort of scandal, Isobel begs Jane for help. And Jane finds herself embroiled in a perilous investigation that will soon have her following a trail of clues that leads all the way to Newgate Prison and the House of Lords—a trail that may well place Jane's own person in the gravest jeopardy.

Cathy Chapman, September 11, 2006 (view all comments by Cathy Chapman)
Stephanie Barron has "discovered" the formerly unknown journals and papers of authoress Jane Austen, and presents them, with her compliments (and occasional explanatory footnotes). It will come as no surprise to Austen fans that Jane was as perceptive and witty in her journals and letters as in her literature, though readers may be somewhat surprised that Jane was also an equally adept sleuth!

First in Barron's wonderful mystery series featuring Jane Austen. A true gem. Jane Austen lives!
