A novel by

 
 
In this "delightful debut mystery,"* London society's Beau Brummell proves that murder is never in style...

In the days of Regency England, Beau Brummell stood as the uncrowned king of genteel society. The quintessential style-maker, trend-setter, and fashion-forger, Brummell was the last person one would expect to find in the middle of a murder mystery. But then, Beau Brummell was never one to do what was expected...

When the Duchess of York begs for his help, Beau Brummell wouldn't think of refusing. The Countess of Wrayburn has been poisoned, and her paid companion is the prime suspect. Unfortunately, the Duchess is the one who arranged the young woman's employment with the late Countess, and the scandal could ruin the Duchess' good name.

Brummell does some inquiring of his own, and soon realizes that more than one person had motive to kill Lady Wrayburn. And he is going to find out who they are. Because if there's one thing that's never in style, it's murder...

"Beau Brummell...proves as adept at sniffing out a murderer as he is at squashing the socially pretentious in Rosemary Stevens' delightful debut mystery. A charmer from first page to last." --Dean James

"Ms. Stevens has deftly captured the tone and spirit of the times, vividly providing her readers with the details, sights, smells and customs of a bygone era, when detective work was still in its infancy, and a gentleman could be snubbed for an improperly tied neckcloth as well as for murder. Real historical characters mix easily with fictional ones with a sure and clever touch." --Mystery Books, Washington, D.C.
