Overview

Praise for the Lord Edward Corinth–Verity Browne series:

“Roberts just keeps getting better with each book.”—Publishers Weekly

“Recommend[ed] heartily for history-mystery devotees.”—Booklist

“The political context keeps the stakes high enough to satisfy fans of international thrillers and historical romances alike.”—Kirkus Reviews

“A witty and meticulous recreation of the class-ridden middle England of the 1930s . . . a perfect example of golden-age mystery traditions with the cobwebs swept away.”—Guardian

At the outset of World War II, Byron Gates, a self-absorbed poet, moves out of London together with his young daughter and stepdaughter to avoid the anticipated bombing. His wife, an actress, is in the States. His acquaintance, Virginia Woolf, has found him a little cottage in the village of Rodmell where she and her husband, Leonard, are living. Coincidentally, newlyweds Verity Browne and Lord Edward Corinth are setting up their first home in the Old Vicarage. Gates is anxious to curry favor with the “Woolves” and their set. His children put on a pageant for the neighbors based on the beheading of King Charles I, and then Gates is found dead as if executed for treason. Verity and Lord Edward investigate this gruesome murder.

David Roberts worked in publishing for over thirty years before turning to writing full time. He has written ten mysteries featuring Lord Edward Corinth and Verity Browne. He divides his time between London and Wiltshire.

Good, but tends to be very much like the other books in the series
