In the third Blue Satan mystery (after The Birth of Blue Satan and The Spider's Touch), Hester Kean is living peaceably as a companion to her cousin, Isabella, Countess of Hawkhurst. Then her brother, Jeremy, whom Hester has not seen for years, is arrested for treason. It is 1715, and the Jacobites, supporters of James Stuart, have launched a rebellion against George I. A bookseller is murdered, and Jeremy, whose books were published by the dead man, is once again in trouble. Hester turns to the outlaw Blue Satan-actually Gideon St. Mars, the deposed Viscount Hawkhurst, with whom she has a secret relationship. Together, they must solve the murder while keeping St. Mars's presence in London secret. Wynn, who also has written ten historical romances, has added an outstanding entry to a much-touted and award-winning historical series. Pour a cup of tea, and settle back for a journey to England in 1715, full of romance, adventure, and heart-stopping action. Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
