The Repentant Rake by Edward Marston. I had to post this paperback without an ISBN because the ISBN on the back cover brought up the hardcover version. When I went on amazon to copy the blurb, I saw that 3 copies are available from other sellers starting at $49.99! You can get my copy for 1 credit, LOL. Here's the description:

Could the disappearance of Sir Julius Cheever's son, a notorious rakehell, and the fact that a blackmailer is terrorising London's most dissolute fops be connected? Divided by politics but united in a desire to see justice done, Christopher Redmayne and Jonathan Bale join together once more.

But how can they hope to find those who exploit the scandal of others, when the victims themselves will do anything to maintain their anonymity? And what of Sir Julius' son? Most feel he must have been the victim of his own, debauched appetites, but a few talk of his repentance. So, where is the repentant rake? And, with only lies, rumours and gossip to work with, even Redmayne and Bale despair of finding him.

"Marston is probably the best of our British writers of historical crime stories" -- Birmingham Post

"Sparkling with humour, dramatic twists and deft turns of phrase" -- Publishers Weekly

"All the swashbuckling thrills and romantic swagger of blood-and-thunder tragedies" -- New York Times Book Review
