Softcover; Mass Market PB Penguin: NY; c1997, 1998; First Paperback Edition 496 pages Very Good 
No spine creases but book curved/bent as if stored for a long time in a box that was too full (?), covers have light edgewear; interior pages clean, none loose.; The fourth and, unfortunately, final mystery in the Regency Julian Kestrel series, is set in early 19th century Northern Italy. Highly recommended, there are only four mysteries in this enjoyable series as the author passed away in 1998.; 'At a mist-shrouded villa on Lake Como, an Italian nobleman is grooming a young English tenor for a career on the glittering operatic stage. Before their sojourn is over, one will die by violence and the other will disappear. Enter Julian Kestrel, Regency dandy and amateur sleuth. Travelling on the Continent with his ex-pickpocket valet, Dipper, Kestrel is irresistibly drawn into this baffling murder case. Among the suspects are a runaway wife and her male soprano lover; a liberal nobleman at odds with Italy's Austrian overlords; a mocking Frenchman with perfect pitch; and a beautiful, clever woman who begins to haunt Kestrel's dreams. Soon Kestrel is caught between the shadowy Carbonari - secret rebels against the Austrians - and the equally ruthless Austrian-sponsored police. But at the heart of the mystery is the captivating tenor known only as "Orfeo." Was he a political agent? A callous adventurer? A jealous lover? These questions take on a new urgency when the killer strikes again. And as Kestrel uncovers the truth, he risks becoming the next victim. '

Spine lightly creased, covers edgeworn, laminate beginning to lift at edges, pages pale yellow but clean, none loose.; The third mystery in this enjoyable series set in Regency England. Unfortunately the author died quite young and there are only four books featuring the 'dandyish man-about-town' amateur sleuth Julian Kestrel.; "Alexander Falkland hasn't an enemy in the world. Young, talented, and charming, he shines in every field he enters: law, architecture, the investment market. But one night his luck runs out with a vengeance. In the midst of one of his famous parties, he is found with his head smashed, a bloodstained poker beside him. No wonder the inscription on his grave reads: Whom the Gods Love Die Young.

When the Bow Street Runners fail to solve the crime, Alexander's distraught father turns to Julian Kestrel, elegant dandy and intrepid amateur sleuth. Soon Kestrel is up to his ears in suspects-and enigmas. Who was Alexander, really? Social reformer or butterfly, devoted husband or rake? Kestrel must peel off one mask after another, until at last he discovers an Alexander no one knew -- except, perhaps, the killer."

84 6972 SAYERS, Dorothy L. Busman's Honeymoon
Softcover; Mass Market PB HarperCollins: NY; c1937, 1995; 403 pages Very Good 
Light spine creases, covers creased and lightly edgeworn, pages and inside covers age browned; pages clean, none loose. ; This is 'the last of the Wimsey mysteries completed by Dorothy Sayers. And while murder is hardly the best way for the newlyweds to begin their honeymoon, it is certainly the most appropriate. Their married life begins when the former owner of their newly acquired estate is found quite dead in the cellar. What Lord Peter hopes to be a private and romantic stay in the country becomes a baffling case, what with a misspelled "notise" to the milkman and a dead man who has not a spot of blood on his smashed skull and not a pence less than six hundred pounds in his pocket. In short, as Lord Peter says, "Back to the old grind. Rigor mortis and who-saw-him-last, blood-prints, information received and it-is-my-dooty-to-warn-you." Together, the newlyweds pursue the truth to its less than happy ending even as they look ahead to their lives together.' Recommended.; "Busman's Honeymoon has everything—mystery, comedy, love, and drama—all served up in Dorothy Sayers's best style."—NYTimes This author highly recommended by many Anglophile Books readers including Jerri C. of the ATS and the AT and DES email discussion groups.

The Thirteenth Tale : A Novel, SETTERFIELD, Diane
86 6471 SETTERFIELD, Diane The Thirteenth Tale : A Novel
Hardcover Atria: NY; 2006; Book Club Edition 406 pages Very Good+ in Very Good+ dust wrapper 
Spine ends bumped, a few smudges to page edges; interior clean and bright. Dust wrapper faintly edgeworn. A very nice copy indeed.; From the dust wrapper:'All children mythologize their birth...So begins the prologue of reclusive author Vida Winter's collection of stories, which are as famous for the mystery of the missing thirteenth tale as they are for the delight and enchantment of the twelve that do exist.

The enigmatic Winter has spent six decades creating various outlandish life histories for herself -- all of them inventions that have brought her fame and fortune but have kept her violent and tragic past a secret. Now old and ailing, she at last wants to tell the truth about her extraordinary life. She summons biographer Margaret Lea, a young woman for whom the secret of her own birth, hidden by those who loved her most, remains an ever-present pain. Struck by a curious parallel between Miss Winter's story and her own, Margaret takes on the commission.

As Vida disinters the life she meant to bury for good, Margaret is mesmerized. It is a tale of gothic strangeness featuring the Angelfield family, including the beautiful and willful Isabelle, the feral twins Adeline and Emmeline, a ghost, a governess, a topiary garden and a devastating fire.

Margaret succumbs to the power of Vida's storytelling but remains suspicious of the author's sincerity. She demands the truth from Vida, and together they confront the ghosts that have haunted them while becoming, finally, transformed by the truth themselves.

"The Thirteenth Tale" is a love letter to reading, a book for the feral reader in all of us, a return to that rich vein of storytelling that our parents loved and that we loved as children.'; 'A compelling emotional mystery in the timeless vein of Daphne du Maurier's "Rebecca", about family secrets and the magic of books and storytelling.'
