Publisher's Summary

It's 1763. Career diplomat Alec Halsey returns to London and the shocking news his estranged elder brother, the Earl of Delvin, has not only killed his friend in a duel but become engaged to the woman he had hoped to marry.
When Alec reluctantly attends a weekend house party to celebrate his brother's engagement, he gets more than he bargained for when a lady's maid is murdered, the bride-to-be is attacked, and a guest is shot dead. Alec uncovers a connection between these sinister acts and his brother's duel. He must also confront a cruel twist of fate that explains why his brother loathes him and will go to any lengths to discredit him in Polite Society.

Could have done without the whining females

I wanted to like the new "Alec Halsey" book, but alas no. While the two males, Michael and his brother, had strong identities, Selena and Emily were too much professional victims. I couldn't see why either brother would be attracted to them. The women were so annoying that after a while, I just fast-forwarded through their scenes.

After recently reading Ashley Gardner's "CAPT Lacey" series, C.S. Harris' "Sebastian St. Cyr" series, and Robert McCammon's "Matthew Corbett" series, the Alec Halsey series just didn't come up to par. I'll pass on Brant's next Alec Halsey novel.

To be Continued...

I loved the narrator. I thoroughly enjoyed the story, although it is a bit predictable. However, it is one half a book, and very honestly ends with to be continued. The two books together are probably the same price if it had been told within the pages of one cover, so I am not suggesting that it is one of the rip-offs. But I will not get the next one, because I am irritated by the cliff hange game. The author deserves better, she has written a good story, but not good enough that I will go to the trouble of getting the next one.
