This is the third entry in Barron's stylish series featuring Jane Austen as a detective. At the request of Lord Harold Trowbridge, Jane attends a costume party to observe the behavior of headstrong 18-year-old Lady Desdemona Trowbridge. But the party is soon in shambles when the manager of a theatrical troupe is found dead in the anteroom. When Lord Harold's nephew is charged with the murder, Jane is drafted to investigate. Barron incorporates characters and plot strands from the first two entries in the series, Jane and the Unpleasantness at Scargrave Manor and Jane and the Man of the Cloth , as well as real-life personages of the time, who are often set in context by the voluminous footnotes. As a result, this novel feels a bit stitched together; indeed, Barron's research seems to be showing. Although not quite up to the high standards set by the previous books, this one will still prove diverting for hard-core Austen fans. ((Reviewed December 1, 1997)) Copyright 2000 Booklist Reviews
