Intrigues abound as Jane finds herself surrounded by Henry's noble customers and the politics of the day, as well as a rather unstable former friend of Eliza's who begs her help in the selling of some jewels for funds, as her husband is threatening to divorce her for one of the city's 'muslin set', a 'barque of frailty'.
Then the unfortunate Russian princess is found with her throat slit on the steps of Lord Castlereagh's home, the Austens are visited by none other than Bow Street runners, those infamous early members of 'the law' and Jane is forced to investigate what she believes to be Tscholikova's murder to save both herself and her sister from the hangman's noose.
The seventh in this wonderful series of Jane Austen sleuth mysteries is again another page-turner. Though the Gentleman Rogue, Lord Trowbridge, is missed from proceedings, there is a little relief in the form of Sylvester Chizzlewit, a young solicitor who helps the ladies with their investigations. And though I did guess the villain quite early on in this instance, I didn't realise the reason why the character was so bad, so it didn't really spoil my enjoyment of the book overall too much.
Trtès bien écrit on y croit, c'est intéressant et instructif! bon polar !!!
