I stumbled across this book while doing research on the Georgian era for my second novel, FORTUNE'S SON.
I had not previously heard of this popular 19th century author.
The Lady Of Lynne reminds me in some ways of Dangerous Liasons, a tale in which a nefarious plot is hatched against a perfectly innocent young woman by a pair of completely amoral aristocrats.
The Lady of Lynn is written in the first person narrative by a secondary character who is both an observer and a pawn in the unfolding drama. The plot is one of unparalleled avarice, ruinous gambling, and coldblooded revenge.
I enjoyed this brief foray into the dissolute Georgian era.
