Debt of Dishonour – Book Review
By Angela Youngman Sep 30, 2010, 14:58 GMT
Mary Andrea Clarke's work just gets better and better. I really like this feisty heroine who takes on the dual roles of highwayman plus society lady.
Boyce Polp is murdered on his way to an evening party and the blame is laid on the highwaymen who make traveling even a short distance on the outskirts of London a perilous task.
Georgina Grey (whose alter ego is the Crimson Cavalier) is not convinced and sets out to investigate. It quickly becomes clear that Boyce Polp was not all that he seemed, and that there were many who wished him dead. What is the link between the austere Lady Winters and highwayman Harry?
The climax of the story is definitely different and unexpected. From disreputable gambling clubs to the highly select environs of Almacks; the lifestyle of Regency London is brilliantly evoked. It makes a nice relaxing read. More please!
