Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
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.

Meet the Author

At age sixteen, Sheri Cobb South discovered Georgette Heyer, and came to the startling realization that she had been born into the wrong century. Although she doubtless would have been a chambermaid had she actually lived in Regency England, that didn't stop her from fantasizing about waltzing the night away in the arms of a handsome, wealthy, and titled gentleman.

Since Georgette Heyer was dead and could not write any more Regencies, Ms. South came to the conclusion she would have to do it herself. In addition to the John Pickett mysteries, she has also written several Regency romances, including the critically acclaimed THE WEAVER TAKES A WIFE.

A native of Alabama, she now lives in Loveland, Colorado.
