We’ve got a double-bill of exciting Regency events with David Lassman and Terence James, the writing duo behind the Regency Detective series, set in Jane Austen’s Bath. The story revolves around Jack Swann, the Darcy of detectives – a cultured and attractive gentleman, and an eligible bachelor. Haunted by the unsolved murder of his father, Swann sets himself up as unofficial consulting detective to the Bow Street Runners, but is drawn to Bath to protect his sister – and to find the “Scarred Man”, who might lead him to his father’s killer. However, he soon finds his own life threatened by Wicks, a local underworld boss whose reign of terror has the city in its grip.
On Sunday 30th June, the authors will lead a special themed walk, taking us to some of the novel’s locations, revealing little-known facts about the darker side of Regency Bath. The walk will begin at 10.30am, and last for an hour and a half. Gather at Topping & Company bookshop at 10am. There is a limit of 30 places for this event – book soon to avoid disappointment.
