Jane and the Madness of Lord Byron

October 31, 2010

 Stephanie Barron returns to her series of mysteries featuring Jane Austen. This is book ten; the first book is Jane and the Unpleasantness at Scargrave Manor.

After a death in the family, Jane and her brother Henry, a banker, spend a fortnight at the lively seaside town of Brighton. Brighton is lively because the Prince Regent has a home and entertains there. A chance encounter on the way to Brighton with the young poet Lord Byron introduces Jane to young Catherine, who is bullied by her father General Twining. Jane gets caught up in Brighton society despite being in mourning, and later is asked to investigate a murder. This is not the gentle read one would expect from the Regency setting, but a more dramatic and exciting mystery. You can read more at the author’s website.
