Georgie is a bit skeptical about the whole thing since she knows that George has a history of frequent love affairs, not a desirable trait in a soon-to-be husband.
When society beauty Kiki Anstruther, reputed latest mistress of Prince George, is found dead in the palace, everything is thrown into disarray, including Lady Georgiana’s own romantic attachment to Darcy O’Mara. Is it possible that everything Georgie believed about her own love life is a pack of lies? As Georgie is uncovering facts about Kiki’s murder, she’s also discovering unsavory things about Darcy and also about life in the palace.
Rhys Bowen has been nominated for every major mystery award including the Edgar, and has won many, including the Agatha and Anthony Awards. She was born in England and ow splits her time between southern California and Arizona.
