A brutal murder draws nobleman Sebastian St. Cyr into the tangled web of the British royal court in this gripping historical mystery from the national bestselling author of Where the Dead Lie.

London, 1814. As a cruel winter holds the city in its icy grip, the bloody body of a beautiful young musician is found half-buried in a snowdrift. Jane Ambrose's ties to Princess Charlotte, the only child of the Prince Regent and heir presumptive to the throne, panic the palace, which moves quickly to shut down any investigation into the death of the talented pianist. But Sebastian St. Cyr, Viscount Devlin, and his wife Hero refuse to allow Jane's murderer to escape justice.

Untangling the secrets of Jane's world leads Sebastian into a maze of dangerous treachery where each player has his or her own unsavory agenda and no one can be trusted. As the Thames freezes over and the people of London pour onto the ice for a Frost Fair, Sebastian and Hero find their investigation circling back to the palace and building to a chilling crescendo of deceit and death . . .

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very enjoyable mystery 1839 and Mary Todd has arrived in Springfield to stay with her sister Elizabeth Edwards. Which causes trouble between Lincoln and Speed and they both via for her attentions. But Lincoln is distracted by a new case. Henry Trailor has accused his two brothers, William and Archibald, of murder. An entertaining story, which is well-written. I like the writing style of this series and the characters are a delight to read about. Although this is the fourth in the series it can easily be read as a standalone story but I would recommend reading the first three as they are all enjoyable reads.
