On a cold January night in 1817, former cavalry officer Captain Gabriel Lacey is summoned to the banks of the Thames to identify the body of a young woman. When Lacey looks at the pretty, dead young woman, cut down too soon, he vows to find her murderer.
Lacey's search takes him to the Glass House, a sordid gaming hell that played a large part in the victim's past, as well as to gatherings of the haut ton and the chambers of respectable Middle Temple barristers. Lacey uncovers secrets from the highborn and the low, finds himself drawn deeper into the schemes of the crime lord, James Denis, and explores his tentative new friendship with Lady Breckenridge.

"The Glass House"
This is the third Captain Lacey story and just as wonderful as the first two. The main characters are likeable and it interesting to see what they do next. The recording is great. I am looking forward to hearing the whole series on Audible.
I have fallen hard for Capt Gabriel Lacy & his heroics! This is not your typical murder mystery....Capt. Lacy always seems to have many twists & turns, but comes out ahead of the game! I loved this book & James Gillies does an awesome job of narrating!
"Loved captain Lacey"
Great series of books. I hope they continue. I am hoping that the Captain can find happiness I can't wait for the next book
"I am hooked on this series. "
This is the third Captain Lacey book I have read. I love a good mystery and the plots in these have kept me guessing. The characters are well drawn and believable. Lacey is a wonderful anti-hero, like an Edwardian James Rockford. I wouldn't call them great literature, but they are intelligent and wonderfully entertaining. The narrator's charming British accent (never too thick to understand) is completely appropriate to the stories, and his ability to create distinct voices for each character is superb. I had already downloaded the 4th book before I was finished with this one.
