Modern art dealer Granville Hardwick has a way with people -- a way of making them wish he were dead. His London gallery is filled with works of questionable merit, his dating pool consists of other men's wives, and his home is the eyesore of a fine old neighborhood. The neighborhood of Scotland Yard's Chief Superintendent Tony Hetheridge, as a matter of fact. So when Hardwick turns up dead, bashed on the head by a rather tasteless reproduction, it's Hetheridge and his new bride, Kate, who embark on solving the case.


When he married Kate, Tony expected things to be different. But with Kate's ne'er-do-well relatives making trouble on the home front, and his own enemies attacking from within Scotland Yard, the case of the dead art dealer and three unfaithful wives might do more than change Mayfair. It might change Lord and Lady Hetheridge forever.

Return to the world of Ice Blue in Black & Blue, the fourth in the New York Times bestselling Lord & Lady Hetheridge mystery series, which readers call "witty," "packed with interesting characters," and "consistently entertaining."

From the Author: Ms. Jameson would like to thank all her readers for their loyalty, patience, and kind words. The two questions new readers always ask are, "Will there be more Hetheridge--'Blue'--books?" and "What else have you written?"

Regarding question one, will there be more Lord & Lady Hetheridge ("Blue") books, the answer is yes. When asked when she plans to end the series, she replied, "Never." She is already at work on book #5, Blue Blooded.

Regarding question two, what else has she written, please try the Dr. Benjamin Bones cozy mystery series. Set in wartime England beginning in September 1939, this nostalgic, romantic series follows the amateur sleuthing of Dr. Bones, a native Londoner, in his adopted Cornish village, Birdswing. Book #1, Marriage Can Be Murder, and book #2, Divorce Can Be Deadly, are available now. Also available is Dr. Bones and the Christmas Wish, a charming novella about love lost and love found.

What a delight to find a well-written, fast paced, enjoyable mystery. I actually like the characters and their interactions. I appreciate the way the author pulls the curtain back, to give the reader a view of the British class system as well as the inner workings of Scotland Yard. I hope this series continues for many books to come.

A warm little cozy mystery with some interesting characters. Tony and Kate continue into making a home while poor Paul continues to blunder with his mom adding to his woes.

A very good read even better if you have read the others first! Eagerly awaiting the next in the series!

I love her books. They are the kind you want to solve the crime but you don't want the story or book to end. She doesn't write fast enough for me.

Just another great story in a wonderful series. Thank you Emma for developing such truly realistic, well developed, intriguing characters. Can't wait for the next "chapter".

Per the story, it was convincing to assume that Lord Chief Inspector would continue in his role. The evidence sometimes drew your attention to other suspects, but realistically it developed per the way our author wanted, really good read. Want you to develop the characters in the next novel. Polecat

Smart, character-driven writing. Usually read one of these books in a single sitting. Funny and engaging.

I have read each of these books in quick succession... because I couldn't put them down! The characters are each believable and fully developed... whether likeable or not... and the story lines are fresh. AND I love that the romantic lead is 60 and sexy! Write faster!... I need more!!

Realistic characters and dialogue rather than excessive description and exposition make this series a rare find ; l actually read the entire book instead of skipping through the needless fillers!

These mysteries are a fun diversion. Besides solving the murder, there is a bit of romance.

Emma Jameson does it again, continuing her Lord and Lady Hetheridge series with a fine, well written book. She manages to keep the romance alive while weaving another excellent murder mystery that keeps you guessing until the very end. I have become a devoted fan of this author.

Another engaging mystery in this delightful series by the witty and talented Emma Jameson. Tony, Kate and Paul draw the reader in from the first page and never let go. I can't wait for the next book.
