    Arabella Beaumont, courtesan, adventuress, and sleuth, romps her way through Regency London into a dangerous affair of blackmail. . .Arabella Beaumont is the fortunate possessor of one of England's most celebrated bodies--with a formidable business brain to match. Her latest venture: transforming a London hotel into a social club for courtesans. To afford the lavish renovations, Arabella needs her featherbrained friend Constance Worthington to repay the fortune she owes her. And now that Constance has a wealthy protector, Pigeon Pollard, she's finally good for the cash. Alas, the imprudent Constance has also been dallying with Lady Ribbonhat's footman, and a mysterious blackmailer is threatening to tell all. If Constance pays up, there will be no money left for Arabella's renovations;if she doesn't, the cuckolded Pigeon is bound to leave her penniless. But as the case escalates rapidly from extortion to murder, Arabella's life, as well as her fortune, hangs precariously in the balance. . .Praise For Death And The Courtesan"e;Saucy. . .the effervescent and free-thinking Arabella is a delightful heroine."e; --The Bellingham Herald"e;Historical mystery readers fond of arch and ribald takes on the genre will best appreciate Christie's debut."e; --Publishers Weekly

    In the second in Pamela Christie's witty, deliciously unconventional Regency mystery series, Arabella Beaumont-courtesan and sleuth-discovers that the pursuit of art can be a dangerous thing. . .London's aristocrats pay handsomely for the company of courtesan Arabella Beaumont. Arabella, in turn, wisely invests her earnings in an art collection that will endure long after her legendary charms have faded. It's a decided blow, then, when her antiquities dealer is murdered before he can procure an item for which she paid dearly-a rare and provocative statue of Pan. Undaunted, Arabella decides to travel to Italy and locate the treasure herself. What begins as a delightful caprice soon takes on a sinister aspect. Arabella's quest appears to have made her a donna fatale, causing death and mayhem wherever she goes. A thing of beauty may be a joy forever, but Arabella's own life could be cut scandalously short unless she can locate the statue, and uncover the heart of an ever-deepening mystery. . .Praise For Death And The Courtesan"e;A delectable treat for the historical mystery lover to savor. You will be left eager for Arabella's next adventure!"e; -Teresa Grant, author of The Paris Affair"e;Historical mystery readers fond of arch and ribald takes on the genre will best appreciate Christie's debut."e; -Publishers Weekly
