Synopsis

Lady Rose Summer, the wayward Edwardian debutante who keeps getting mixed up in disreputable adventures, would swear she is not a jealous woman. After all, she knows her engagement to private detective Captain Harry Cathcart is only a ploy to keep her parents from shipping her off to India to find a husband. But then Harry's latest client, Dolores Duval---a vision of curves with a seductive French accent---starts appearing everywhere at his side. And that changes everything.

In a fit of rage, Rose threatens Dolores, only to be found the very next day, standing over her dead body. The newspapers rush to convict her, but can Harry and Superintendent Kerridge of Scotland Yard clear Rose's name and put the real murderer behind bars?

Filled with drawing-room scandal and murderous intrigue, Our Lady of Pain is a delightful addition to Marion Chesney's beloved Edwardian mystery series.

Our Lady of Pain was originally published under the name "M.C. Beaton writing as Marion Chesney."
