#Giveaway of The Rose in the Wheel (John Chase Mystery #1) by S.K. Rizzolo

Regency London knows Constance Tyrone as the conspicuously celibate founder of the St. Catherine Society, dedicated to helping poor women. One wet November evening a carriage mows down Constance outside her office. Curiously, while her corpse's one foot is bare, the other is shod in a clean satin slipper despite the muddy road. Why was a gentlewoman abroad in the night? And if she died under the wheel, whose hands bruised her neck and stole her monogrammed crucifix?


Dismissing the idea of an accident, Bow Street Runner John Chase forms an unlikely alliance with Penelope Wolfe, wife of the chief suspect. A young mother paying the price for an imprudent marriage, Penelope is eager to clear her husband Jeremy, a feckless portrait painter whose salacious drawings of the victim suggest an erotic interest. Chase's first task is to learn the identity of the mysterious benefactor who goes bail for Wolfe while Penelope traces the victim's last movements. Barrister Edward Buckler, intrigued, shakes off his habitual lethargy and joins their investigation.


As horrifying murders on the Ratcliffe Highway claim all London's attention, the trio discovers that it won't be easy to unravel the enigma of Constance Tyrone, a woman who revives the legend of martyred St. Catherine.

About the Author

                               
S.K. Rizzolo
I am the daughter of an Italian-American avid reader and an Arkansas farm boy turned oilman. Raised in the Middle East, I had many adventures, including a brush with a cholera epidemic and an evacuation from Libya when Colonel Gaddafi seized power. In college I majored in English with no clue as to how I meant to support myself, eventually earning an M.A. and becoming an English teacher. Set in Regency England, my mystery series follows the exploits of a Bow Street Runner, an unconventional lady, and a melancholic barrister.  The Rose in the Wheel and Blood for Blood are published by Poisoned Pen Press.  Die I Will Not will be released in 2014.
