THE GLASS HOUSE
Genre: Mystery/Suspense/Thriller, Mystery, Historical
Captain Lacey, Gardner's Regency-era sleuth, helps investigate the murder of a young woman found in the Thames. His search for the culprit leads him to the Glass House, a high-class brothel frequented by the very wealthy, where he comes face to face with members of the aristocracy, who are none too pleased about his inquiries.
But the stakes are raised when murder claims one of their own, and Lacey calls on a friend and a nemesis to help solve the crimes.
Newcomers and fans alike will
The mystery is compelling, and the author has added a touch of romance, as Lady Breckenridge hints at her attraction to Lacey, and Louisa Brandon, wife of his former commanding officer, also makes an appearance. (Dec., 249 pp., $5.99)
