The restorative power of the ocean brings Jane Austen and her beloved brother Henry, to Brighton after Henry's wife is lost to a long illness. But the crowded, glittering resort is far from peaceful, especially when the lifeless body of a beautiful young society miss is discovered in the bedchamber of none other than George Gordon--otherwise known as Lord Byron. As a poet and a seducer of women, Byron has carved out a shocking reputation for himself--but no one would ever accuse him of being capable of murder. Now it falls to Jane to pursue this puzzling investigation and discover just how "mad, bad, and dangerous to know" Byron truly is. And she must do so without falling victim to the charming versifier's legendary charisma, lest she, too, become a cautionary example for the ages.

Not as good as Jane Austen!

Couldn't get past the first 50 pages.

I've been reading these mysteries featuring Jane Austen for years now. I always look forward to the next one. The author hasn't released a new one in this series for a few years now, so I quickly got myself on the hold list when I discovered it. For any fans of regency fiction and mysteries, this is a superb series. The first title is Jane and the Unpleasantness at Scargrave Manor.

I enjoyed the "first" series about Jane Austn, despite the abundant description, but not the newer ones. There are too many angry people in this book.
