Overview

Captain Lacey Regency Mysteries, Volume One, by Ashley Gardner

A collection of the first three novels in the Captain Lacey Regency Mysteries series, plus two Captain Lacey short stories.

This volume includes:
The Hanover Square Affair (full-length novel)
A Regimental Murder (full-length novel)
The Glass House (full-length novel)
The Gentleman's Walking Stick (two short stories)

Meet Captain Gabriel Lacey, a half-pay cavalry officer who returns to Regency London with little money and no purpose, but with a sense of honor and fairness. He's pulled into a search for a missing young woman, and thus begins investigating crime, using his status as a gentleman but a poor one to cross the boundaries between the top of society and the working class of the back streets.

In The Hanover Square Affair, a missing girl and horrific corpse plunge Captain Lacey into the dark underworld of Regency London.

In A Regimental Murder Captain Lacey is on hand to save the life of a beautiful widow; he then investigates the death of her husband, a colonel who had been accused of murdering a cavalry officer during the Peninsular War.

In The Glass House, Lacey investigates the death of a barrister's young wife, and links her to a notorious brothel where the haut ton play.

Two short stories finish off the collection: In "The Disappearance of Miss Sarah Oswald," Lacey is asked to locate a man's missing daughter, though he senses that the family would be just as happy for her to remain missing. In "The Gentleman's Walking Stick," Lacey untangles a web of deceit involving a respectable society man, his only clue being a missing walking stick.

Join Captain Lacey and his friends as he investigates intrigue, murder, and villainy from the plush ballrooms of Mayfair to the darker streets of Regency London.

I really enjoyed these books.  Captain Lacey's character is multi-dimensional and the other characters are wholly believable.  I cannot wait to read more by this author.

Captain Lacey is great. Just the gentleman that we wish we had roaming the streets and helping people now. The books are well written and I highly recommend them to anyone who likes period mysteries.

These are wonderful books . Captain Lacey is one of my new favorite detectives. The characters are wonderfully flawed -- historically relevant, and the plots are filled with good, unexpected twists. These books are "page-turners" -- enjoy!

I LOVE LOVE LOVE this set! Come on, for 99 cents, you get this set of amaing mysteries. This author writes on the same level as Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's Sherlock Holmes. A must read!

I liked the characters and the Regency Era feel. It was a disappointing time when I came to the end of the three novels and two short stories. I will look for more of the Captain Lacey series.

Mystery series about a flawed man and his flaws make him real, but a bit annoying

Best mysteries. Best stories. Best character development. I've only read 3 and I'm hooked. Can't wait to read the next one. Don't pass this series up.

Characters and plots move thru books and keep you interested. No great literature but good story telling. Not a fast food but comfort food for snow bound. Ready to buy #2. This was a good buy. Would make a better pbs series than the lawyer one mom

The dialogue made me feel I was in England proper. It is not simple today's English in an earlier time.
