About this item

In the tradition of Georgette Heyer comes the first in this Regency mystery starring Raif Jarrett, an intriguing new hero who illuminates the dark corners of Georgian England Returning soldier Raif Jarrett is seeking a quiet life as an agent to the Duke of Penrith. So when he is sent to the town of Woolbridge to settle the affairs of one of the Duke's tenants following his sudden death, the dangers of the Yorkshire countryside could not be more unexpected. Jarrett begins to uncover a network of crime and corruption but is thwarted at every turn by the town's powerful and much-feared magistrate, Mr. Justice Raistrick. When a young woman dies in tragic and mysterious circumstances, Jarrett is accused of her murder and has to fight for his life while desperately seeking to uncover the truth. As he unravels one mystery, Raif Jarrett keeps the lid firmly closed on another. As a stranger in Woolbridge, Jarrett sets tongues wagging, but he refuses to talk about his family, especially his connection to the Duke, nor will he explain why he fled to the army--seeking almost certain death--some years previously. Even the elegant and charming Henrietta, in whom Jarrett longs to confide, cannot work out this enigmatic newcomer.
