About the Author:

Robin Paige is the pseudonym of husband-and-wife team Susan Wittig Albert and Bill Albert. Susan Wittig Albert is the author of the China Bayles mysteries Thyme of Death, Witch's Bane, Hangman's Root, Rosemary Remembered, Rueful Death, Love Lies Bleeding, Chile Death, Lavender Lies, Mistletoe Man, and Bloodroot. Bill Albert is the coauthor, with his wife, of more than sixty novels for young adults. They live in the Texas hill country.

From Publishers Weekly:

In his seventh late-Victorian mystery, Paige (the pseudonymous writing team of William and Susan Wittig Albert) makes his hardcover debut with a neatly plotted tale of mayhem among the racing set. It's time for the Derby at Epsom Downs, and Lord Charles Sheridan and his American-born wife, Kate, are on hand because Lord Charles has been asked to photograph the finish of the race for the Jockey Club with his new automatic camera. Disaster strikes when a jockey is killed on the racecourse, and race officials suspect his horse may have been doped. Though the practice of doping horses is not illegal, officials are nevertheless worried about the death's effects on betting and the presence of an American gambling ring with expertise in doping. While Charles is occupied with these matters and, subsequently, the murder of a bookie, Alfred "Badger" Day, Kate is visiting with the glamorous Lillie Langtry, doing research for a new book and puzzling over the theft of the notorious actress's jewels. Can the theft of the Langtry gems somehow be connected to Day's murder? Kate and Charles delve into the mysteries and, as usual, find the answer in another clever, richly detailed whodunit. Readers who like their historical mysteries on the lighter side will find much to enjoy here. Agent, Deborah Schneider.
