Publisher's Summary

Late December, 1818: As Captain Gabriel Lacey prepares for his upcoming wedding, his former neighbor, Marianne Simmons, comes to him about an actress friend who's gone missing. Lacey agrees to help look for the actress, little realizing that the search will pit him against men who think nothing of abduction, assault, or sending incendiary devices to the innocent.

At the same time, Lacey's personal life is changing, and his time for investigation is frequently and frustratingly interrupted. He is also commanded by a new Bow Street Runner to assist in bringing down James Denis, a criminal with whom Lacey now has complicated ties. Lacey must help or else risk hanging alongside Denis.

The search for the actress takes Lacey from elegant assembly rooms to the backstage of the Theatre Royal in Drury Lane, where he finds darkness in all corners. Lacey's life and honor are constantly challenged as he tries to settle into his new life, until he realizes he can follow no code but his own.

The eighth book in the Captain Lacey Regency Mysteries.

    Story
    "I just adore Captain Lacey"

    Reading these stories is like eating potato chips- you can't stop at just one. Ashley Gardner/Jennifer Ashley tells terrific tales. Great use of language, fast moving plot and a variety of interesting characters make the Captain Lacey series a must read and reread.
    Hearing James Gillies bring the beloved, brash, honorable Captain to life is simply the icing on a very delicious cake. He gives all the characters the most wonderful colors, with his expressive voice and perfect timing. His rendition actually made me enjoy doing housework - and I loathe housework- but it was so wonderful to listen I managed to get an awful lot done in spite of myself. Bravo!

    I really enjoyed this book , if you like mysteries set in London in 1800's this is a story for you. It is light reading with a touch of glamour and colourful characters. the plot moves along quickly and keeps your interest. The narrator James Gilles gives a fine performance.

    "Would never have guessed the ending!"

    Another brilliantly complex story with unexpected twists and turns. Thoroughly enjoy the characters as presented by the narrator...love Grenville! A Disappearance in Drury Lane brings out, once again, the fascinating societal rules of the era and the delightful characters that circumvent those rules. Intrigue, surprise and glimpses of the lives of the rich, the poor and the middle classes of the 19th century.
