Editorial Reviews

Review

"Regency London comes vividly alive in this atmospheric historical; the witty prose and well-developed characters will remind readers of Georgette Heyer and Charles Finch."
Library Journal, starred review

"Dashing and enjoyably melodramatic."
Kirkus Reviews

"[A] cleverly plotted series launch."
Publishers Weekly

"The first of a new series, this historical mystery will appeal not only to cozy readers, but also to lovers of Regency romances."
Booklist

"Well planned and executed. The characters were very likable and I enjoyed reading about the time period as well. I have a feeling that Ms. Quincy's series about Atlas Catesby and his puzzles will be well received and successful. I will be looking for the next book in the series."
Night Owl Reviews

"Murder in Mayfair is a delicious tale of intrigue and deceit set in beautifully drawn Regency England. Fans of Thomas Hardy will especially love the set-up, and everyone will be hoping for the next installment of this new series."
--Tasha Alexander, New York Times bestselling author of The Adventuress

"I've always been a fan of the Regency novel and enjoyed this delicious tale of scandal and villainy in Georgian England."
--Rhys Bowen, New York Times bestselling author of the Royal Spyness and Molly Murphy mysteries

"D. M. Quincys Murder in Mayfair is a quite simply, a great read. The author brings the English Regency vividly to life with a beautifully plotted mystery, a strong sense of place and wonderful characters. Im already eager to read the next Atlas Catesby adventure!"
--Emily Brightwell, New York Times bestselling author of the Mrs. Jeffries mysteries

"An entertaining and twisting tale of jealousy, greed, love and murder teeming beneath the precise manners and splendid facade of Regency society."
--Shelley Freydont, New York Times bestselling author

"Murder in Mayfair is an intriguing story based on an unusual premise (a nod to Thomas Hardy!) with interesting, sympathetic characters and an unexpected ending."
--Carola Dunn, author of the Daisy Dalrymple mysteries

From the Inside Flap

In 1810, Atlas Catesby, a brilliant adventurer and youngest son of a baron, is anxious to resume his world travels after a carriage accident left him injured in London. But his plans are derailed when, passing through a country village, he discovers a helpless woman being auctioned off to the highest bidder--by her husband.

In order to save her from being violated by another potential buyer, Atlas purchases the lady, Lilliana, on the spot to set her free. But Lilliana, desperate to be with her young sons and knowing the laws of England give a father all parental rights, refuses to be rescued--until weeks later when her husband is murdered and Atlas is the only one who can help clear her name of the crime.

Fortunately, Atlas is a master at solving complicated puzzles, both with games and the intricacies of human motivation, and finds himself uniquely suited to the task, despite the personal peril it may put him in. But soon Altas learns the dead man had many secrets--and more than a few enemies willing to kill to keep them quiet--in Murder in Mayfair, the first in a new historical mystery series by D. M. Quincy.
