In an alternate 18th-century London, Queen Charlotte is Regent for mad King George III. But although Britain's ruling hand is feminine, there are few employment opportunities for a woman who has soiled her reputation by running away with her father's fencing master. Refusing to accept the classic profession for such a woman--prostitution--Sarah Tolerance has become an "investigative agent." When a client employs Miss Tolerance to trace the whereabouts of an antique fan, all of her considerable intelligence and her skill with the sword will be required to get to the bottom of the mystery. If Jane Austen had written a P.I. novel, this book would be the result.
