Overview

For Deader or Worse by Sheri Cobb South

After a modest wedding ceremony, Bow Street Runner John Pickett and his bride Julia, the former Lady Fieldhurst, set out for a wedding trip to Somersetshire, where Pickett must face his greatest challenge yet: meeting his in-laws.

Sir Thaddeus and Lady Runyon are shocked at their daughter's hasty remarriage--and appalled by her choice of a second husband. Pickett, for his part, is surprised to learn that Julia once had an elder sister: Claudia, Lady Buckleigh, disappeared thirteen years earlier, leaving no trace beyond a blood-soaked shawl. When Sir Thaddeus confides that his wife is convinced Claudia's spirit now haunts her childhood home, Pickett sees a chance to redeem himself in the eyes of Julia's family. He agrees to investigate and, hopefully, lay the Runyon "ghost," whoever--or whatever--it is.

Matters take a grisly turn when Sir Thaddeus's groom is discovered with his throat slit. The timing could hardly be worse, for the whole village is aflutter with the news that Lord Buckleigh has brought home a new bride, just when Major James Pennington, the vicar's son who was Claudia's childhood sweetheart, has returned on leave from war in the Peninsula. The major was apparently the last person to see Claudia alive, and Pickett is convinced he knows more about her disappearance than he's telling. Suddenly it seems the distant past is not so distant, after all. It may not even be past . . .

About the Author

At the age of sixteen, Sheri Cobb South discovered Georgette Heyer, and came to the startling realization that she had been born into the wrong century. Although she probably would have been a chambermaid had she actually lived in Regency England, that didn’t stop her from fantasizing about waltzing the night away in the arms of a handsome, wealthy, and titled gentleman.
Since Georgette Heyer died in 1974 and could not write any more Regencies, Ms. South came to the conclusion that she would have to do it herself. In addition to the bestselling John Pickett mystery series, she has also written several Regency romances, including the critically acclaimed THE WEAVER TAKES A WIFE.
A native and long-time resident of Alabama, Ms. South now lives in Loveland, Colorado with her husband.
