The restorative power of the ocean brings Jane Austen and her beloved brother Henry to Brighton after Henry''s wife is lost to a long illness. But the crowded glittering resort is far from peaceful especially when the body of a beautiful young society miss is discovered in the bedchamber of none other than Lord Byron. As a poet and a seducer of women Byron has a shocking reputation -- but no one thought him capable of murder.
"Barron's ability to capture Austen's tone ('one tires of nothing so quickly as benevolence') helps make this series one of the more literary and enjoyable of the pseudo-Austen oeuvre." (starred review)
