About the Author:

Ruth Dudley Edwards was born in Dublin and now lives in London. A historian and prize-winning biographer, her most recent non-fiction includes the authorized history of The Economist, a portrait of the British Foreign Office, written with its co-operation, and `The Faithful Tribe', a portrait of the Orange Order. Three of her satirical crime novels featuring Baroness Troutbeck have been short-listed for awards from the Crime Writers' Association.

From AudioFile:

The latest in Dudley Edwards's comic mysteries is as delightful as her previous books. In this one, the indomitable Ida "Jack" Troutbeck has become a baroness. Her sometime employee Robert Amis is hired to staff a House of Lords pro-fox hunting committee. Peers are murdered in great quantities before Amis can solve things, and it's all very funny. Bill Wallis has dealt with this cast of characters before, and he owns the lot of them. With the voices, the timing, the warm narrative voice, and the masterful handling of many-peopled conversations--he's top-notch.
