Description - Jane And The Waterloo Map by Stephanie Barron

November, 1815. The Battle of Waterloo has come and gone, leaving the British economy in shreds; Henry Austen, high-flying banker extraordinaire, is about to declare bankruptcy-dragging several of his brothers down with him. The crisis destroys Henry's health, and Jane flies to his London bedside, believing him to be dying. While she's there, the Reverend James Stanier Clarke, chaplain to His Royal Highness the Prince Regent, invites Jane to tour Carlton House, the Prince's fabulous London home. Clarke is a fan of Jane's books, and during the tour he suggests she dedicate her next novel-Emma-to HRH, whom she despises. However, before she can speak to HRH, Jane stumbles upon a body-sprawled on the carpet in (where else?) the Regent's library. The dying man, Colonel MacFarland, was a cavalry hero and a friend of Wellington's. He utters a single failing phrase- oWaterloo mapoaand Jane is on the hunt for a treasure of incalculable value and a killer of considerable cunning. Story Locale- London, England Series Overview- Between novels, Victorian England's most beloved author doubles as a sleuth in often idyllic locales.
