Now it proves deadly.Following their recent intrigue at Highbury, Fitzwilliam and Elizabeth Darcy visit the seaside village of Lyme on holiday. Family business also draws them there, to receive the personal effects of Mr. Darcys late cousin, a naval lieutenant who died in action.Their retreat turns tragic when they come upon a body lying at the base of the Cobb. The victim is Mrs. Clay, a woman with a scandalous past that left her with child--a child whose existence threatened the inheritance of one of her paramours and the reputation of another. Did she lose her balance and fall from the slippery breakwater, or was she pushed?Mrs. Clays death is not the only one that commands the Darcys attention. When Mr. Darcy discovers, among his cousins possessions, evidence that the young lieutenants death might have been murder, he allies with Captain Frederick Wentworth (hero of Jane Austens Persuasion) to probe details of a battle that took place across the sea . . . but was influenced by a conspiracy much closer to home.The Deception at Lyme (Or, The Peril of Persuasion) is the delightful sixth installment in the critically acclaimed and award-winning Mr. and Mrs. Darcy mystery series by Carrie Bebris.
