In Regency England there were very few career options open to a woman with a ruined reputation. Disowned by her family after she ran off with her brother's fencing master, Sarah Brereton returns to England, takes Tolerance as her new last name, and becomes an "agent of inquiry." Hired to find an antique Italian fan, Sarah traces the fan through several owners, but her quest seems to cause the murders of several innocent people. After discovering that the earl of Versellion, Edward Folle, is really the man who hired her, both Sarah and the earl become the target of the killers when the seemingly harmless fan's secret is revealed to be quite dangerous. Robins plays a bit with history, but she effortlessly captures the texture of both the elegant realm of London's aristocrats and the far less glamorous world of those who serve them. As skilled with a sword as she is at uncovering secrets, Sarah is a fascinating heroine, and Robins surrounds her with equally intriguing secondary characters. Politics, deception, danger, and a bit of romance all come together beautifully in this superb debut. John Charles

“An utterly charming and intriguing visit to a 'different' Regency London . . . Readers will find putting down this adventure with the intrepid Sarah Tolerance intolerable.” ―Rosemary Stevens, author of Death on a Silver Tray

Then this book is for you. It's well-written, with nicely flowing, straightforward prose, realistic and sympathetic characters, and a brisk plot. My only regret is that there are only two other books in the series.
The tidbits at the end of the novel add some nice touches--they explain some of the information and the reasoning.
Overall, this is a nicely done work.
