Item Details

The dependably sharp Miss Dido Kent is suffering her sister-in-law's attempts to marry her off to the ghastly clergyman Doctor Prowdlee, with his abominable side-whiskers. Dido, however, is determined to refuse him. As punishment she is sent on a journey as companion to her hypochondriac-and quite wealthy- Aunt Manners, whose good favor the family wants very dearly to maintain.When they arrive at Charcombe Manor, Aunt Manners's childhood home, they find a mystery waiting for them. A rich heiress, Letitia Verney, has disappeared while visiting the manor, and Mr. Tom Lomax is suspected of abducting her. Dido, upon hearing his story, is inclined to believe in his innocence-but how is she to explain by what method a young lady enters the front door, only to not appear on the other side? The Elizabethan Manor is full of enigmas: there is a deserted wing in which lights mysteriously appear at night, a crying ghost which keeps visitors awake, and memories of old family quarrels.As the mystery intensifies, so does Dido's romantic life when the senior Mr. Lomax comes to town. With his son's future on the line as well as his own, it's up to Dido to put the pieces together to save the Lomaxes and find the vanished young Miss Verney. A captivating fourth installment of the Dido Kent series, readers will find more of the rich characters, meticulous historical detail and masterful suspense they've come to expect from Anna Dean.
