[Read by Davina Porter]
Captain Harry Cathcart and Lady Rose Summer have entered into an engagement of convenience so Rose can avoid being sent to India with all the other failed debutantes. Her sharp intellect and radical ideas have served to repel her would-be suitors. Roses parents are hardly thrilled that their only child is marrying a man in trade, but Harry comes from a good family, and at the very least, they hope he will keep their troublesome daughter out of mischief. Unfortunately, even a pretend engagement cannot save Rose from trouble. Bored with endless parties, teas, and balls, she befriends Dolly Tremaine, a beautiful young girl newly arrived from the country and overwhelmed by the demands of the Season. Rose is delighted to have a protégée, but their friendship is cut tragically short when Dolly is found floating in a river. Harry must solve the mystery of Dolly's death -- and keep Rose from being the murderers next victim.

Lady Rose Summer may be a beauty, but she's still a disappointment to her parents - frustratingly uninterested in balls and parties, alarmingly in favour of social reform. So when she becomes engaged to Captain Harry Cathcart (strictly for convenience, if only they knew), it's a relief of sorts. A detective may be a man in trade, but at least Harry's family and fortune are good. It takes more than a pretend engagement to keep Rose out of trouble, though. Bored with the social round, she's delighted to befriend sweet, bewildered Dolly Tremaine, an exquisite country girl for whom the London Season is all a bit much. But when her protege is found floating in the river, it's time for Harry to step up and solve the mystery of Dolly's death - before Rose herself falls victim.Product Description:
