Jane and the Waterloo Map

Stephanie Barron

The thirteenth installment in Stephanie Barron's fan-favorite Being a Jane Austen Mystery series. Between novels, Victorian England's most beloved author doubles as a sleuth in often idyllic locales. November, 1815. The Battle of Waterloo has left the British economy in shreds; Henry Austen, Jane's favorite brother, is about to declare bankruptcy. The crisis destroys Henry's health, and Jane flies to his London bedside. While she is there, the Reverend James Stanier Clarke, chaplain to His Royal Highness the Prince Regent, invites Jane to Carlton House, the Prince's fabulous London home. Jane only accepts because many of Henry's bad loans were given by the Prince Regent's cronies. She hopes to intercede with the Regent on Henry's behalf, but before she can speak to him, she stumbles upon a dying man in the library--Colonel Ivor MacFarland, who with a knife in his entrails utters a single failing phrase: the Waterloo map . . . and Jane is on the hunt for a treasure of incalculable value, and a killer of considerable cunning. Praise for Jane and the Twelve Days of Christmas "[A]n excellent period mystery for all historical fiction fans...Jane Austen devotees will especially appreciate immersing themselves in the many biographical details about Austen that accompany the fictional murder mystery." --Library Journal, Starred Review "Vivid characters propel the subtle plot to its surprising conclusion. The first-person narration captures Austen's tone as revealed in her letters: candid, loving, and occasionally acerbic." --Publishers Weekly, Starred Review "Barron has clearly done her homework in the language and manners of Austen's time . . . [H]er latest venture edges out competing authors of Regency whodunits."--Kirkus Reviews "[A] good double closed house mystery and an engaging historical novel, with careful descriptions of Georgian Christmas customs." --Booklist Stephanie Barron was born in Binghamton, New York, the last of six girls.
