Overview

September 1817

Captain Gabriel Lacey travels with Lady Breckenridge to his boyhood home in northern Norfolk, only to discover mysterious happenings in and around the Lacey estate. A young woman, cousin of an old friend, has gone missing, strange objects appear in Lacey's ruined house, and the dark windmills on the marshes keep pulling Lacey to them.

The underworld criminal, James Denis, uses Lacey's visit to Norfolk as an opportunity to have Lacey deliver a message to a local squire. A simple task--but one that lands Lacey squarely in international theft and murder. Lacey learns more about Denis's past, and finds himself joining forces with Denis to flush out a brutal killer and save the one person about whom Denis admits to caring.

Book Seven of the Captain Lacey Regency Mysteries. This is a full-length novel.

I've read Jennifer Ashley's Shifters Unbound series, and before that, her historicals. Then I decided to give her Ashley Gardner series a try on my new Nook. I'm hooked!! I ran straight through them all quickly and now have to (eagerly) wait for #8. Captain Lacey and his motley assortment of friends/cohorts are flawed characters, all of them, but they are all the more real and interesting and pull you into the story because of it. Each mystery takes you on a winding path through their lives. Each story could stand alone, but there is a progression in their lives throughout the series. Give them a try and you'll be glad you did.

A Death in Norfolk is number 7 in the Captain Lacey mysteries. The Captain is a man of honor and very likeable. The characters are interesting and the mystery different with each book. I began with the first book The Hanover Square Affair and went on to read each one to number 7. I am now anxiously waiting for number 8.

Yes this is a great read. So how do I get "A Disappearance in Drury Lane #8? Is it in paperback or can I get it on Nook?

Captain Lacey is captivating. A complex character with shades of gray that make him more real and lovable. In each succeeding book you get to know him better. When will A Disappearance in Drury Lane be available? Waiting!

I am hooked on the series.  I suggest reading them in order or get the  box sets which are less expensive then buying each book.  I like how the life of the Captain changes over the course of the books.  The mystery is only part of the  story.  The Captain's relationship with his odd  assortment of friend, who he turns to for help  to solve the crimes,  makes it interesting.

Another Winner................................................................................................. Couldn't put  it down.    So far 6 out of 7 of this series have been exceptional.  Only number 6 was so -so to me.   Can't wait for 8.  Best to read them in order though as the characters grow  and change in each book.

Captain Lacey is drawn into more adventures as he returns to his childhood home. This is once again an excellently written book that moves along smoothly. I'm so glad I discovered this whole series and I look forward to seeing whatelse is in store for Captain Gabriel Lacey.
