Book Description

7 Jan 2008

Duelling, derring-do, and dastardly deeds are all in a day’s work for Liberty Lane: a new heroine for fans of Matthew Hawkwood and Sarah Waters’s Victorian novels.

Thomas Jacques Lane – radical, romantic, scholar and devoted father – had led an unconventional life but of one thing his daughter, Liberty, is certain: he would never have taken part in a duel. So when she receives a note informing her of his death in just such a manner, Liberty ignores all advice and sets off in pursuit of the truth.

With no resources bar her wits, she travels to the Continent and back in search of her father's killer. And as the nation prepares for the coronation of a young Victoria, Liberty uncovers murder and treachery at the very highest levels….

3.0 out of 5 stars A great first introduction to Caro Peacock 18 Dec 2007
Liberty Lane is an unconventional, educated woman unwittingly caught up in a political plot. Liberty's father's dies in suspect circumstances and her reluctance to accept a fabricated story about the exact circumstances starts this tale. In trying to find out the truth she meets a Mr Blackstone, who proposes that she pose as a governess with the Mandeville family in order to find out some things.
A captivating suspense novel placed very early in the reign of Queen Victoria. The narrative portrays the period really well and as a reader you are taken along in a steady pace towards the successful concusion of the mystery. A great first novel, a great new heroine and hopefully many more Liberty Lane Thrillers to follow!

4.0 out of 5 stars Unexpectedly Good Historical Mystery! 8 Sep 2008
By TrishB
I'm not normally a fan of the mystery genre, or historical novels, but I picked this book up and was interested enough by the description to try it. I've very glad I did! Both the story and the characters are very involving, and made it seem very 'real' to me. I shall be looking out for the next book!
