Overview

The Necklace Affair
by Ashley Gardner

London 1817

Captain Lacey agrees to track down the missing necklace of a society matron and prove the innocence of her maid, who has been arrested for the theft. Lady Clifford declares that the rival for her husband's affections has stolen the necklace, but Lacey soon realizes that the problem is not so simple. He recruits Lady Breckenridge to infiltrate the Clifford household, while Lacey and his friend Lucius Grenville follow other leads. The investigation digs up scandal and past secrets, and Lacey finds himself competing with the underworld criminal, James Denis, for the necklace's retrieval.

This is a 25,000-word (ten-chapter) novella. The events in it occur between the end of The Sudbury School Murders and the beginning of A Body in Berkeley Square.

I love this series. The interaction between characters is complex, witty, and human.

Started out a little slowly but is getting very interesting. About half way through the book

A very well-written 70 page story of Regency mystery with Captain Gabriel Lacey requested to find a jewel thief by a distraught Lady of the Ton, only to find misdirection, lies, deceit, and jealousy. And his chance at romance also continues. An excerpt of the next murder mystery story is also provided.

Good story line. The characters needed a little more background info. Maybe this was meant to be the teaser for the rest of the series? Anyway good mystery. Shallow character description.
