Jane Austen is enjoying a summer visit to picturesque Derbyshire when, amid scenes of unsurpassed beauty, she stumbles upon the ugliest slaughter she has ever seen. High in the rocks near the town of Bakewell lies the body of a young gentleman with the face of an angel and a bullet in his head. Even more shocking is the surgeon's revelation that the deceased is a woman -- a maidservant clad in the garb of her master. Tess Arnold had been in charge of the stillroom at Penfolds Hall for many years, until she was dismissed for a scandalous indiscretion. Was Tess the prey of a madman?

An enjoyable historic mystery series featuring Jane Austen. Jane's observations on people and her surroundings are what makes this series stand out and avid readers of Austen will have fun finding "real life" inspirations for characters from her novels in these mysteries.
