Gervase may have inherited the family estate after his father's death, but no one was very excited to see him come home. This is another Regency Romance written by Ms. Heyer. She wrote numerous mysteries and romances and none of the ones I've read have disappointed me. Her writing style provides a lot of period detail and the plots move along slower than most modern works. That fits well with the time period she's talking about and she always comes up with a well thought out story. Ms. Heyer had an interest in people and how they behave because her characters are always authentic. Her main male character is just trying to stay alive and figure out who is trying to kill him. The biggest suspect is his stepbrother, who thought he would be the Earl because Gervase would get killed in the war. Ms. Heyer gives us two interesting young female characters; one all sweetness and grace with beauty and one who is very practical and handles any crisis with ease but is more plain. Mix the pot with attempted murder, love, jealousy, and greed and you get a story that moves right along with several suspects. This author takes all these emotions and swirls a story together that make sense and surprises you with the solution. She also smoothes out all the emotional issues so things are calmer at the end of the story. Why not visit Regency England with Ms. Heyer and follow the Earl on his quest to find out just exactly who wants him dead and why? And if he falls in love on the way there, who can complain?

I have always enjoyed Georgette Heyer. This is one of her most interesting novels. I just wish there was no "bad guy" as all her characters are appealing. An interesting on the plot of a "new" inheritor of the title. The Unknown Ajax also plays with that theme.

This book was not one of my favorites of hers, but it kept me entertained enough to keep me reading.
