About this title


An outlaw with a price on his head, Gideon Viscount St. Mars accepts a risky commission from James Stuart, the Pretender, in the hopes of regaining his estates. Back in England, however, he finds Mrs. Kean entangled in a nest of Jacobite spies. When one of them is murdered, Gideon must choose between his allegiance to James and his concern for Mrs. Kean before uncovering the killer.

From the Inside Flap:

Winner of the Benjamin Franklin Award “The spider's touch, how exquisitely fine! Feels at each thread, and lives along the line.” Alexander Pope THE SPIDER'S TOUCH In this second in the critically acclaimed Blue Satan Mystery Series, earl-turned-highwayman Gideon Fitzsimmons and waiting woman Hester Kean solve an intricate mystery bearing the spider's touch in a swashbuckling romantic adventure.In the reign of George I. On a mission for the Pretender James Stuart, who has promised to restore him to his title and lands, Gideon Viscount St. Mars returns to England, where a price has been placed on his head. There, he discovers that his dearest friend Mrs. Kean has unknowingly been drawn into a nest of Jacobite spies. Before he can free her, a murder at the opera puts Hester's family in jeopardy, and a handsome rake makes an assault on her heart. It will take all Hester's ingenuity and Blue Satan's daring to unravel a treacherous web of deceit.Praise for THE SPIDER'S TOUCH “This glorious, thoroughly authentic historical is for most collections.” —Library Journal, November1, 2002 “ . . . a gloriously political, historically detailed mystery complete with sophisticated story and character development.” —Contra Costa Times “The obvious question for any reviewer assessing a sequel is whether it's as good as the original. My answer is a resounding yes. The characters are just as colorful, the plot just as intricate, and the growing friendship between St. Mars and Mrs. Kean just as delightful.” The Historical Mystery Appreciation Society
