Frances Wynn, the widowed Countess of Harleigh, has several problems. With the mourning period overânot that she really mourned the British noble who married her for her American moneyâshe is moving to London from the Surrey estate that now belongs to her brother-in-law. Before she can settle in, her solicitor tells her that her accounts are frozen by a suit filed by that same brother-in-law. Then Inspector Delaney calls to tell her an anonymous letter suggests that her husband's death might not have been an accident. Her sister, Lily, is due to arrive, accompanied by their Aunt Hetty, for her London season. To top it off, Frances' neighbor George Hazelton is one of two other people who know the full story of the late count's death, and the gossip in the social set is about the thefts occurring after the various balls and dinners. When Frances, George, Aunt Hetty, and the inspector put the pieces together, they find them pointing to one of Lily's three suitors. But which one? Set in late-Victorian London, this debut novel is engaging to the end as Frances and friends struggle to get behind the social facades to the truth. Copyright 2018 Booklist Reviews.
