The Devil's Highway
A Mystery of Georgian England
�A charismatic protagonist�setting a detective novel in the [Georgian] age is a masterstroke.��The Times (London)
Georgian England, 1761. A world of high fashion and even higher spirits�but also of squalid back alleys and violent quarrels, forbidding country roads and shadowy intrigues. Filled with wit and warmth, the novels of Hannah March capture this vibrant era in all its glory and mystery�
Traveling to the country home of his new employer, private tutor Robert Fairfax arrives at a lonely stretch of road that has become known as the haunt of a notorious highwayman. But nothing can prepare him for the shocking discovery of a stagecoach tipped into a ditch�and the dead bodies within it.
Investigating at the behest of the local magistrate, Fairfax quickly discerns that this is more than a simple robbery�and that the victims are not who they appear to be. One man identified as dead is, in fact, alive. And a woman who was supposed to be on board is nevertheless missing. Now Fairfax must piece together this baffling puzzle, before a ruthless killer attempts to send him on his final journey�
�March writes in an engaging, easy-to-read style and draws the reader in from the very beginning.��Charlotte Austin Review
