Overview

It is the summer of 1812. Wellington is fighting Napoleon's army in Spain, Lord Byron is dazzling the Beau Monde with the first Canto of his Childe Harold's Pilgrimage - and Viscount Percy Ainsford Foster Ashe is discovered dead in a shabby boarding house in Brighton.

It is assumed that the young man, whose gambling debts were considerable, has committed suicide. But then a suspicious silver locket is discovered by Lady Charlotte Ashe, the dead lord's now penniless widow, and Theo Bryght, a Bow Street Runner from London, is called in to investigate what is now suspected to be murder.


Who would want to murder Viscount Ashe? Is there more to his gambling addiction than meets the eye? Is there any chance that Lady Ashe will ever recover her lost fortune? These questions haunt Lady Ashe after she returns to her home in the North York Moors - for as she soon finds out, her husband's death may be just the first canto in a deadly ode to revenge.

Editorial Reviews

The Regency Inkwell - M. Perez
"Ode to a Dead Lord" is a brilliant story about murder, deception and love. ... I think that Ms. Jolie Beaumont is sitting on wondrous gold mine of untold stories about Mr. Theo Bryght and his future investigations alongside his lady love, Charlotte Ashe. Reading about these bow street runners, I think of Ms. Anne Perry's Victorian period hero of the "Inspector Pitt" series.

    An interesting read. The mystery was enough to keep you guessing and keep reading. I hope there is a sequel.

    A little gem of a book

    One of the promising books on my "bargin shelf" is Ode to a Dead Lord by Jolie Beaumont, in my opinion has a great deal of promise, Ms. Beaumont¿s protagonist is a Bow Street Runner Theo Bryght, a man with a past. I love Bow Street Runners and spies. Lady Charlotte is a sympathetic character and the attraction between Charlotte and Theo will be fun to watch develope. I can see this little book becoming a series and the characters are interesting enough that I will read the next one when it is released this spring. I love being able to find these little gems, I hope that Ms. Beaumont will continue her work, I will be anxious to see that is to come. A solid first effort.
