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."

Recommended by Jerri C. of the ATS and the Georgette Heyer, Angela Thirkell, and DE Stevenson e-mail discussion groups and by Norma H. Image is actual copy on offer.
