Description: When Colonel William D'Arcy Mann is found shot to death in his Boston hotel suite, there are few to mourn him but many who will feel the repercussions of his death. Mann was the publisher of a scurrilous gossip rag, Town Topics, in which he exposed the indiscretions, great and small, of Boston's highest caste unless they paid the hush money he demanded. By discovering the body, Addington Ames has violated at least two of the inviolable tenets of the Boston Brahmin code of behavior to which he was born -- his name has appeared in the newspapers, and he has been questioned by the police. But his reason for being there in the first place -- Mann's targeting of Addington's young cousin -- is his primary concern.

Cynthia Peale, in this first book of her new mystery series, deftly evokes the atmosphere, both physical and social, of Victorian Boston's high and low society -- the clatter of carriage traffic on fog-shrouded cobblestone streets, the venerable town houses of Beacon Hill, the conviviality and exclusivity of the private clubs, the strict codes of proper behavior. And she has created a perfectly matched team of amateur sleuths -- Addington and his sister, Caroline Ames, whose impeccable pedigree allows them to live in reduced circumstances in their parents' Beacon Hill house without losing a bit of their social acceptance, and Dr. John MacKenzie, an amiable and sharp-witted outsider, who sees far more than he lets on and acts as Addington's Watson.
