From Booklist
Murder and mayhem abound at an Edwardian house party in this debut installment of a promising new mystery series. Physically and spiritually wounded during the Boer War, an embittered Captain Harry Cartwright returns to England with neither a purpose nor any financial wherewithal. The impoverished younger son of a baron, he possesses the proper pedigree but no pocketbook. Through a series of coincidences, Harry becomes known as the sort of man who will "fix things"--if the price is right--for upper-crust clients embroiled in delicate situations. Engaged by the syphilitic marquis of Hedley to investigate a murder in his manor during a weekend of veiled sexual high jinks, he clashes with Lady Rose Summer, the disgraced suffragette daughter of a wealthy earl. The sparks fly as haughty Harry and headstrong Rose reluctantly join forces, creating a charming detective duo driven by both mutual intelligence and attraction. Fans of the author's Hamish Macbeth and Agatha Raisin mysteries, written under the name M. C. Beaton, will welcome this new series of historical whodunits. Margaret Flanagan
