    Lady Emily Ashton must put her fiance in danger to exonerate her friend's husband of murder in her latest 19th-century investigation by Alexander, who lives in Tennessee. Copyright 2008 Reed Business Information.
  • Library Journal Reviews : LJ Reviews 2008 April #1

    Set in late 19th-century England, Alexander's third historical (after And Only To Deceive and A Poisoned Season ) to feature Lady Emily Ashton begins at a country-house party at which political powerhouse Lord Basil Fortescue is shot and Robert Brandon, his protg, stands accused of the murder. Emily attends the party with her fianc, agent of the Crown Colin Hargreaves. While Colin is engaged in uncovering a plot against England, Emily, a close friend of Robert's wife, doesn't hesitate to look for the real killer. When Emily and Colin both wind up in Vienna mingling with anarchists and artists alike, the two are surprised to find how well they work together. Alexander cleverly incorporates historical figures and events into a fictional story of European political intrigue, English society, Viennese culture, and plenty of genteel romantic chemistry. A wonderful choice for readers looking for a pleasant diversion from everyday troubles; recommended for all fiction collections. [See Prepub Mystery, LJ 2/1/08.]—Stacey Hayman, Rocky River P.L., OH
