A Killing Frost

(The fourth book in the Blue Satan And Mrs. Kean series)
A novel by


The fourth book in the award-winning Blue Satan Mystery series begins in the winter of 1715 when the River Thames freezes over and a Frost Fair is erected on the ice. A frozen corpse, leaning against a booth and dressed in expensive coronation robes, turns out to be Sir Walter Tatham, a recent visitor to Hawkhurst House. Lord Harrowby Hawkhurst asks Hester Kean to discover what she can about the baronet's affairs, but will give no reason for the request-all Hester knows is that the mention of Sir Walter is enough to drive Harrowby into a panic. She enlists the help of her friend, the outlawed Viscount St. Mars, alias Blue Satan, who has a mission all his own, having been asked to help a Jacobite rebel escape Newgate prison. With the greatest frost of a century making the very streets of London treacherous, plus a price on Blue Satan's head, the two must use all their wiles to corner a clever murderer.
