Unlikely Traitors

'Praise for Consequences of Sin“This debut novel introduces an intriguing new female sleuth with broad appeal. An action-packed plot, rich period detail, and a bit of romance will insure that readers of cozies and historical mysteries will find much to enjoy.” —Booklist “Blending historical fiction and the amateur-sleuth whodunit with a generous helping of romance, Langley-Hawthorne’s first novel may surprise readers with its subtle narrative complexity. The unexpected plot twists at the book’s conclusion, particularly, make Consequences of Sin a must-read for anyone who enjoys historical mysteries. The first in a projected series, featuring a tenacious—and endearing—protagonist.” —Paul Goat Allen, Barnes & Noble “Romance readers should appreciate the conflict between the heroine’s attraction to the dark, handsome Lord Wrotham and her sense of duty to marry the man her father intended for her.” —Publishers Weekly Praise for The Serpent and the Scorpion“Pre–World War I England is a seething cauldron of conflicting ideologies as Bolsheviks, suffragettes, socialists and merchants of death battle for control. . . . Ursula’s second period adventure caps its romance and mystery with a shocking climax.” —Kirkus Reviews “The book sweeps from the steamy bazaars of Egypt to proper English drawing rooms as Ursula battles international intrigue and her own sensuous nature. Dorothy Sayers would be proud of her Oxford sister.” —Rhys Bowen, award-winning author of the Molly Murphy Mysteries and the Royal Spyness Mysteries “Showing an admirable grasp of social and political history, Langley-Hawthorne closes her tightly knit tale with an unexpected twist that will leave readers impatient for the next book.” —Publishers Weekly'
