Murder Most Austen

(2012)
(The fourth book in the Elizabeth Parker Mystery series)
A novel by

 
 
A dedicated Anglophile and Janeite, Elizabeth Parker is hoping the trip to the Jane Austen Festival in Bath will distract her from her lack of a job and her uncertain future with her boyfriend.

On the plane ride, she and Aunt Winnie meet Professor Zackary Baines, a self-proclaimed expert on all things Austen. He claims that within each Austen novel there is another darker secondary story, usually involving sordid behavior. He claims to know the true cause of Austen's death, and it's a truth which will greatly outrage Austen fans. Elizabeth and Aunt Winnie don't take him or his findings seriously. But someone must, because during the costume ball, Baines is stabbed to death.

Kiely expertly combines the wit and spunk of Austen's protagonists with a contemporary traditional mystery, creating an entertaining puzzle. Austen fans especially are in for a big treat.

Genre: Mystery
