Jane and the Wandering Eye: Being the Third Jane Austen Mystery

Jane and the Wandering Eye: Being the Third Jane Austen Mystery Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

As Christmas of 1804 approaches, Jane Austen finds herself "insupportably bored with Bath, and the littleness of a town." It is with relief that she accepts a peculiar commission from her Gentleman Rogue, Lord Harold Trowbridge—to shadow his niece, Lady Desdemona, who has fled to Bath to avoid the attentions of the unsavoury Earl of Swithin.

But Jane's idle diversion turns deadly when a man is discovered stabbed to death in the Theatre Royal. Adding to the mystery is an unusual object found on the victim's body—a pendant that contains a portrait of an eye! As Jane's fascination with scandal leads her deeper into the investigation, it becomes clear that she will not uncover the truth without some dangerous playacting of her own....

Synopsis:

In Jane Austen's most fearsome and festive outing thus far, the nineteenth-century author and amateur sleuth attends a masquerade ball that could lead either to the demise of her reputation, or the end of her life. Reprint.

Synopsis:

Stephanie Barron is the author of eight previous Jane Austen mysteries. She lives in Colorado, where she is at work on the next Jane Austen mystery.
