When Maidens Mourn- C. S. Harris
This is the 7th in the series of Sebastian St Cyr mysteries and is an excellent read. I wondered what was left for our hero after book 6 and the author has found a whole new series of angles to explore with her character. From his twisted relationship with his family to his new marriage to the daughter of his worst enemy, I can't wait to see what comes next.
The mystery in this book is the death of scholarly maiden Gabrielle Tennyson, and the disappearance of the two young cousins, George & Alfred (yes, THAT Alfred) who were visiting her. St Cyr & his new bride (who was a friend of Gabrielle's) start separate investigations that come together with a suprising conclusion.
