Tempi duri per lady Georgiana Rannoch, cugina di Sua Maestà. Avere sangue reale nelle vene non basta quando si è al verde, soprattutto in un mondo ancora alle prese con la Grande Depressione. Ma ecco presentarsi un'opportunità per vie davvero impensate. Al facoltoso duca di Eynsford, che pareva destinato a veder estinguere il titolo per mancanza di eredi, si è ricongiunto dalla lontana Australia un nipote di cui ignorava l'esistenza. Ora bisogna che qualcuno trasmetta a questo ragazzo dai modi non coltivati i fondamenti dello stile di vita aristocratico, affinché possa occupare degnamente la sua posizione nell'alta società. E chi potrebbe riuscirci meglio di Georgie, educata ai più elevati standard di comportamento? Peccato che, giunta nella residenza di Kingsdowne Place per insegnare al novizio l'abc delle buone maniere, tipo che la forchetta va a sinistra del piatto e il coltello a destra, si ritroverà a dover scoprire come mai il coltello sia finito invece conficcato nella schiena del duca. Dando la caccia a un assassino intenzionato a non rispettare le regole dell'etichetta.

Un cupo Natale si profila all'orizzonte per l'aristocratica e squattrinata lady Georgiana Rannoch. Pur di evitare la temuta compagnia dei parenti si è fatta assumere come addetta agli intrattenimenti in una residenza di campagna a Tiddleton-under-Lovey, un villaggio del Devon che sembra uscito da una fiaba. Purtroppo le cose cominciano male fin dal primo giorno, quando un vicino rimane ucciso da un colpo di fucile sparato forse accidentalmente. Non sembrano migliorare il secondo, con un uomo affogato in un ruscello dopo essere caduto da un ponte e aver battuto la testa su una pietra. Per peggiorare decisamente il terzo... Tre morti violente in appena tre giorni? Potrebbero essere collegate a una recente evasione di detenuti nella zona. Oppure alla maledizione di una strega bruciata viva secoli prima, la vigilia di capodanno. Alla povera Georgie toccherà così occuparsi non di giochi e divertimenti per le feste, ma di una serie di "incidenti" che pare senza fine. Catapultata in un macabro paese delle meraviglie, il suo Natale sarà come da tradizione tinto di rosso. E non solo per il colore delle decorazioni.

Hurled back in time, a London police detective struggles to solve a nineteenth-century murder mystery in Golden Age master John Dickson Carr’s thrilling mystery novel A woman is killed in a well-lit corridor, dying before the eyes of three witnesses who, impossibly, detect no foul play. For more than a century, this baffling murder lies cold in the files of Scotland Yard until it is discovered by Detective-Superintendent John Cheviot, who yearns to apply modern scientific policing to the grisly old case. He is about to get his chance. Taking a cab to Scotland Yard, Cheviot steps out in front of Old Scotland Yard and sees a beautiful woman beckoning him. Suddenly it is 1829 and Cheviot is a member of the newly organized London police force. He might now have an opportunity to solve the most puzzling murder in the Yard’s history, but in a time before fingerprints and ballistic analysis, he will find police work to be far more baffling and brutal than he is used to.
