 A collection of the first three novels in the Captain Lacey Regency Mysteries series plus two Captain Lacey short stories.

Meet Captain Gabriel Lacey, a half-pay cavalry officer who returns to Regency London with little money and no purpose, but with a sense of honor and fairness. He’s pulled into a search for a missing young woman, and thus begins investigating crime, using his status as a gentleman but a poor one to cross the boundaries between the top of society and the working class of the back streets.

In The Hanover Square Affair, a missing girl and a horrific corpse plunge Captain Lacey into the dark underworld of Regency London.

In A Regimental Murder Captain Lacey is on hand to save the life of a beautiful widow; he then investigates the death of her husband, a colonel who had been accused of murdering a cavalry officer during the Peninsular War.

In The Glass House, Lacey investigates the death of a barrister’s young wife, and links her to a notorious brothel where the haut ton play.

Two short stories finish off the collection: In “The Disappearance of Miss Sarah Oswald,” Lacey is asked to locate a man’s missing daughter, though he senses that the family would be just as happy for her to remain missing. In “The Gentleman’s Walking Stick,” Lacey untangles a web of deceit involving a respectable society man, his only clue being a missing walking stick.

Join Captain Lacey and his friends as he investigates intrigue, murder, and villainy from the plush ballrooms of Mayfair to the darker streets of Regency London.

"I love a good mystery with both a spunky young woman heroine and a dog too!"

"The Sam Darling mysteries are some of the best I've ever read." 

"Dufresne wraps humor, mystery, romance and a whole lot of fun into one package."

Follow Samantha Darling, her dog Clancy, and her beloved George through the first six books in Jerilyn Dufresne’s bestselling cozy mystery series! Between her big family of five siblings, her charming hometown of Quincy, and a sudden run of murders, Sam has her work cut out for her. No one asked her to investigate, but that has never stopped her...

#1 - Who Killed My Boss?

Moments after hiring Samantha Darling as a therapist, Dr. Burns is murdered. Stunned by his sudden death and desperate to keep the job she just got, Sam vows to find the killer. 

#2 - Any Meat In That Soup?

When a man falls down at Samantha Darling’s feet, she thinks it’s pretty funny. But she stops joking when he turns up dead. 

#3 - Can You Picture This?

If Sam had known when she knocked over the guy's bicycle that it would put her knee-deep in murder again, she might have thought twice. 

#4 - Will You Marry Me? 

There's a Chicken Convention in town as Sam takes her curiosity on the road and tries to solve another murder--and this time the feathers are flying! 

#5 - Where Is Henderson?

Just as Sam is getting ready to marry her sweetheart George, a dead body falls off the train…and suddenly, the psychic sleuth and her canine companion are off to investigate another murder. 

#6 - Who's the Rogue?

Sam and her honey George are settling happily into married life with only a few bumps in the road… until Sam gets cast in her community theater’s production of “The Murderous Rogue,” and something goes bump on the stage. Oh no… another murder!
