Overview

Captain Lacey Regency Mysteries, Volume One, by Ashley Gardner

A collection of the first three novels in the Captain Lacey Regency Mysteries series, plus two Captain Lacey short stories.

This volume includes:
The Hanover Square Affair (full-length novel)
A Regimental Murder (full-length novel)
The Glass House (full-length novel)
The Gentleman's Walking Stick (two short stories)

Meet Captain Gabriel Lacey, a half-pay cavalry officer who returns to Regency London with little money and no purpose, but with a sense of honor and fairness. He's pulled into a search for a missing young woman, and thus begins investigating crime, using his status as a gentleman but a poor one to cross the boundaries between the top of society and the working class of the back streets.

In The Hanover Square Affair, a missing girl and horrific corpse plunge Captain Lacey into the dark underworld of Regency London.

In A Regimental Murder Captain Lacey is on hand to save the life of a beautiful widow; he then investigates the death of her husband, a colonel who had been accused of murdering a cavalry officer during the Peninsular War.

In The Glass House, Lacey investigates the death of a barrister's young wife, and links her to a notorious brothel where the haut ton play.

Two short stories finish off the collection: In "The Disappearance of Miss Sarah Oswald," Lacey is asked to locate a man's missing daughter, though he senses that the family would be just as happy for her to remain missing. In "The Gentleman's Walking Stick," Lacey untangles a web of deceit involving a respectable society man, his only clue being a missing walking stick.

Join Captain Lacey and his friends as he investigates intrigue, murder, and villainy from the plush ballrooms of Mayfair to the darker streets of Regency London.
