Overview

A Covent Garden Mystery
By Ashley Gardner

Captain Lacey stops to assist a young woman in the market at Covent Garden one morning, and realizes to his astonishment that she is his daughter, Gabriella. Lacey then discovers that his estranged wife and her paramour, a French officer, have journeyed to London at the invitation of James Denis to dissolve her marriage to Captain Lacey.

Meanwhile, a Bow Street Runner and a man from the Thames River Police have asked Lacey to help them look into the disappearances of "game girls" from Covent Garden. The magistrates aren't interested in their fate, but perhaps Lacey can learn a thing or two. Lacey agrees and recruits old friends to help.

But when the goings-on in Covent Garden put his daughter in grave danger, Lacey's crusade turns personal. He will do anything, and call in any favor from anyone, in order to protect his own Gabriella.

Book Six in the Captain Lacey Regency Mysteries. This is a full-length novel. (Extra: Chapter One of A Death in Norfolk.)
