THE DEVIL'S HIGHWAY by HANNAH MARCH
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 ditchand 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...
Georgian England, 1761. A world of high fashion and even
higher spiritsbut 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
