When the beautiful Lady Fieldhurst comes home after a ball to discover her faithless husband's body on the floor of her bedchamber with her sewing scissors in his neck, it falls to young John Pickett, a new Bow Street Runner, to investigate. Smitten by the Lady but aware of their social distance, he scours the London of 1808 in search of exonerating evidence. The dead man was an important figure in the Foreign Office, and this connection turns out to be vital for Pickett's saving Lady Fieldhurst and the reputation of Bow Street. South, who lives in Mobile, AL, has published several young adult romances and two Regencies, and her experience is reflected in this lively historical romp. For public libraries.
