London, 1814. As a cruel winter holds the city in its icy grip, the bloody body of a beautiful young musician is found half-buried in a snowdrift. Jane Ambrose's ties to Princess Charlotte, the only child of the Prince Regent and heir presumptive to the throne, panic the palace, which moves quickly to shut down any investigation into the death of the talented pianist. But Sebastian St. Cyr, Viscount Devlin, and his wife, Hero, refuse to allow Jane's murderer to escape justice.

Untangling the secrets of Jane's world leads Sebastian into a maze of dangerous treachery where each player has his or her own unsavory agenda and no one can be trusted. As the Thames freezes over and the people of London pour onto the ice for a Frost Fair, Sebastian and Hero find their investigation circling back to the palace and building to a chilling crescendo of deceit and death...

Praise for Why Kill the Innocent The best St. Cyr yet. --Booklist The mystery highlights the circumscribed course of women's lives of the Regency era while exposing the rot that underlies the period's glitter.... Highly recommended for lovers of historical thrillers. --Library Journal, starred review Praise for When Falcons Fall Harris' talent for character development, polished prose, and accurate, Regency-era details makes this eleventh or any of the previous 10 an easy starting point for newcomers to the Sebastian St. Cyr series...Psychologically atmospheric like Imogen Robertson's Westerman and Crowther mysteries, with the skewering social wit of Anne Perry's Charlotte and Thomas Pitt novels, this is historical mystery at its best. --Booklist (starred review) An engrossing tangled mystery and astonishing tale about a tragic search for identity. An excellent choice for St. Cyr fans and readers of historical mysteries. --Library Journal Strong...[an] intricate murder puzzle. --Publishers Weekly Praise for the Sebastian St. Cyr Mystery Series This riveting historical tale of tragedy and triumph, with its sly nods to Jane Austen and her characters, will enthrall you. --Sabrina Jeffries, New York Times bestselling author Sebastian St. Cyr is everything you could want in a Regency-era nobleman-turned-death investigator: uncannily clever, unwaveringly reserved, and irresistibly sexy. The entire series is simply elegant. --Lisa Gardner, #1 New York Times bestselling author Thoroughly enjoyable . . . Moody and atmospheric, exposing the dark underside of Regency London. --Deanna Raybourn, New York Times bestselling author
