A chilling mystery with a solution that will leave you spellbound. Stephanie Barron does an excellent job of creating Jane Austen’s world. Details of early 19th-century country life of all cases ring true, while the story line is clear, yet full of surprises. Jane Austen is enjoying a summer visit to Derbyshire`s craggy peaks, sparkling streams, and cavernous gorges. But there, amid scenes of unsurpassed beauty, she stumbles upon the ugliest slaughter she has ever seen. High in the rocks near the town of Bakewell lies the body of a young gentleman. With blond curls and delicate features, the victim has the face of an angel - yet Jane can see that he had been shot in the forehead and savagely mutilated.
