9781250022486: Snobbery with Violence: An Edwardian Murder Mystery (Edwardian Murder Mysteries)

When a marriage proposal appears imminent for the beautiful -- if rebellious -- Lady Rose Summer, her father wants to know if her suitor's intentions are honorable. He calls on Captain Harry Cathcart, the impoverished younger son of a baron, to do some intelligence work on the would-be fiancee, Sir Geoffrey Blandon.

After his success in uncovering Geoffrey's dishonorable motives, Harry fashions a career out of "fixing" things for wealthy aristocrats. So when the Marquess of Hedley finds one of his guests dead at a lavish house party, he knows just the man to call.

But when Harry is caught between his client's desire for discretion and his suspicion that murder may indeed have been committed, he enlists the help of Superintendent Kerridge of the Scotland Yard and Lady Rose, also a guest at Lord Hedley's.

Set in Britain and the Edwardian world of parties, servants, and scandal, M. C. Beaton's Snobbery with Violence is a delightful combination of murderous intrigue and high society.

From the Back Cover:

The Fashion In Shrouds
Lady Rose Summer's debut into high society is a complete disaster. Rose's father suspects her fiancé Sir Geoffrey Blandon to be nothing more than a first-degree blackguard and calls on Captain Harry Cathcart, the impoverished younger son of a baron, to investigate. After Harry brings forth evidence of Blandon's dishonorable intentions, a scandalous public breakup follows. To redeem her name, Rose attends the last-chance soirée at Telby Castle for aristocratic women with dubious matrimonial prospects. But when a malicious guest is found dead under strange circumstances, Rose becomes far more intrigued with discovering the truth than with landing a suitor. From Telby Castle's whisper-filled corridors to country lanes with secrets at every turn, Harry and Rose must unravel a web of lies, rumors, and perilous plots as a clever murderer sets out to make Rose's disastrous season her last.

"Chesney maintains her charm and sassiness." -Kirkus Reviews
