Couldn't figure out til the very end "who done it". A bit more serious and definitely more detailed politically than earlier books. Still, Jane's voice shines through, and we see her fearlessly follow clues until the end. As always, tidbits of Jane's real life make up part of the story. No one does this kind of book as well as Stephanie Barron.

In this book 9 of the series, we find Jane spending some weeks with her brother Henry and his wife Eliza, the "Little Comtess" in London. Jane takes note of a lady alone at the Opera one evening, the next day only to find that she is dead under suspicious circumstances. The coroner would have it suicide, but Jane does not think so. In order to solve this mystery Jane ends up in some very interesting situations before all is made clear. If you do not know what the "Barque of Frailty" refers to, in Jane's time this was one of the terms used to describe a 'kept' mistress.
