Regency sleuth Atlas Catesby hunts an assassin
Aristocratic adventurer Atlas Catesby has spent most of 1815 trying to forget Lady Lilliana Warwick, but when she implores him to help her solve a murder, Atlas is compelled to say yes.
The ne’er-do-well brother of Lilliana’s maid died of arsenic poisoning. An accident? The police think so, but his sister suspects he was murdered. Atlas and Lilliana discover that the victim had a mysterious lover—a high-born lady he threatened with scandal after she spurned him. When they uncover her identity, they soon find a whole string of women who had reason to kill the handsome charmer.
Now, even as Atlas wrestles with his growing feelings for Lilliana, the two must work together or become the assassin’s next victims.
“The author brings the English Regency vividly to life…. I’m already eager to read the next Atlas Catesby adventure!”—Emily Brightwell
