The Duchess of York is the daughter of a king and the wife of a prince, but in spite of her regal bearing, she remains unhappy. She avoids London because she fears that her husband would flaunt his mistress in her face. Only the dire straits of her friend Miss Ashton could compel Freddie to visit the city.

Freddie calls upon her friend Beau Brummell for help when Miss Ashton's employer died from poisoning and Bow Street thinks she killed the cantankerous elderly woman. Although Beau is more concerned with making the proper fashion statement than proving the innocence of a maid, he cannot refuse Freddie's request. The Corinthian soon discovers that the Dowager Duchess had numerous enemies who wanted her dead and could have easily poisoned her milk. Beau continues to dig for the identify of the killer even as he proves that the Royal Duchess' confidence in him as being more than just a pretty face is valid.

Anyone who has read a Regency tale will know Beau Brummell as the ultimate fashion fad of the era. However, DEATH ON A SILVER TRAY portrays a more complete individual than the usual Beau found in novels as he uses his brains to ferret out the identity of a killer. The fascinating tale has cross appeal to historical mystery fans and historical romance readers as Rosemary Stevens paints an intriguing look at the English aristocracy inside a witty and delightful mystery. This first tale in what hopefully is a long running series is a triumph for readers of both sub-genres.
