Requirements: ePUB Reader , 290 KB
Overview: Cordelia, Lady Cornbrook confronts her past. It’s not pleasant, but luckily she’s armed with a short, stabby sword.
It’s late summer and Cordelia is rattling around her Surrey estate, annoying the servants and causing the gardeners to hide in the bushes. Her old friend – or nemesis – Hugo Hawke turns up, and he’s closely followed by his own past. It’s good news … at first.
But Cordelia has received a note warning her that she is at risk of harm from a “continental gentleman” and it turns out that the local area is positively brimming with potential suspects.
It’s not Cordelia who is found dead in a stream, however. The race is on to find the killer before they strike again. She’s aided by her motley retinue of servants, and severely hampered by her well-meaning friends who only wish to help her improve her social standing.
Etiquette has never been Cordelia’s strong point. But she’s still got that sword…
