Jane and the Genius of the Place
In the waning days of summer, Jane Austen is off to the races -- the Canterbury Races -- where the rich and fashionable go to gamble away their fortunes, risk their reputations, and flirt with ruin. Even though the atmosphere is ripe for scandal, Jane is unprepared for the drama that ensues when a raven-haired beauty in a scarlet tiding habit takes center stage. And hours later. when the final heat is won, in a shabby chaise less than a hundred feet from where Jane sits, the impossible is revealed: the beauty's lifeless body, her ruby tiding habit nowhere to be seen.
Deliciously sinister and splendidly wrought, "Jane and the Genius of the Place" is a stylish puzzle that only the incomparable Jane Austen could hope to solve.
