Q: Your ten-book series about Jane Austen as detective has carried readers through more than a decade of the novelist’s life, from December 1802 to what is now the spring of 1813 in Jane and the Madness of Lord Byron

Q: Your ten-book series about Jane Austen as detective has carried readers through more than a decade of the novelist’s life, from December 1802 to what is now the spring of 1813 in Jane and the Madness of Lord Byron. How closely do you follow the historical record of Austen’s life, and how much of the series is pure fiction? A: Some of the books are so faithful to Jane’s letters that I’ve used the actual calendar of her week as the structure of the novel-and included everyone she mentions as a character. But others, like Jane and the Madness of Lord Byron, are complete invention.

Madness of Lord Byron marks Stephanie Barron’s tenth novel in the best-selling Jane Austen Mystery series. The next morning, Jane and Henry are shocked to learn that the lifeless body of a young lady found in Byron’s bed was their naïve new friend Miss Catherine Twining!

Jane and the Madness of Lord Byron marks Stephanie Barron’s tenth novel in the best-selling Jane Austen Mystery series. For fourteen years, and to much acclaim, she has channeled our Jane beyond her quiet family circle into sleuthing adventures with lords, ladies and murderers. The next morning, Jane and Henry are shocked to learn that the lifeless body of a young lady found in Byron’s bed was their naïve new friend Miss Catherine Twining! The facts against Byron are very incriminating. Curiously, the intemperate poet is nowhere to be found and all of Brighton ready to condemn him.

And he is barely of age, Miss Austen! And she is old enough to be his mother - or very nearly!

Lord Byron had tossed Catherine Twining out of Lady Oxford’s chaise; and Desdemona was intimate with Lady Oxford You have known the Countess of Oxford some years, I apprehend?  . And he is barely of age, Miss Austen! And she is old enough to be his mother - or very nearly!

The restorative power of the ocean brings Jane Austen and her beloved brother Henry, to Brighton after Henry’s wife is lost to a long illness. But the crowded, glittering resort is far from peaceful, especially when the lifeless body of a beautiful young society miss is discovered in the bedchamber of none other than George Gordon—otherwise known as Lord Byron. As a poet and a seducer of women, Byron has carved out a shocking reputation for himself—but no one would ever accuse him of being capable of murder. Now it falls to Jane to pursue this puzzling investigation and discover just how “mad, bad, and dangerous to know” Byron truly is. And she must do so without falling victim to the charming versifier’s legendary charisma, lest she, too, become a cautionary example for the ages.

So far I have avoided Jane Austen, both in the original and in later authors’ takes on her, because the minutiae of the society scene—of any period—don’t interest me, but I chanced this mystery because it was supposed to feature Lord Byron, certainly an interesting character, and reviewers had praised it. By 20% of the way through the book, though, Byron had made only one appearance, and a very unappealing one at that—as a kidnapper and probable would-be rapist—and nothing much else had happened. Jane seemed a pleasant enough person, and it was interesting to get a look at Brighton in its Regency heyday, but neither of those things were enough to hold my interest, so I stopped. If you like Jane Austen and/or Regency stories, this book might well appeal to you—but if not, don’t bother.

This installation of a series beloved to me seems to have less"Jane" and more madness. While I am glad that Jane and Henry get to enjoy each other's company, the other characters, and even the settings of this book, feel less solid than I have come to expect. Perhaps as there is more fiction - fewer of Austen's actual letters to hang the fiction on - I found the descriptions of town, pavilion, rooms, less clear and immersive than previous works. Still, the action led to an interesting plot; as with all mysteries the blinds and dead ends were enjoyable, but Jane's single minded coherence is lost in the efforts of too many characters, going to too many places, causing a tumbled, unstructured narrative that feels different than Jane writing to herself in her little journal.

I was so happy to discover this book, the latest in the Jane Austen mystery series by Ms. Barron. I had thought that she had decided not to continue the series. Everyone in the book behaves just as they ought, including Jane and her brother Henry in Brighton, of all places. Wonderful character studies of Byron, the Regent, and various society ladies. And the sadly lamented Harold Trowbridge is remembered by the introduction of his niece to the storyline. I can only hope that Jane and her new friend will become partners in detection. For the record, I cried like a baby when Trowbridge died in an earlier book, and fans of the series will be able to relive their grief along with Jane whenever his name comes up in the series. (Ms. B: how about a few new stories to fill in between the others in the series, so that we can get more of Harold and Jane? They were so perfect together.)

I'm hooked forever on this series. Well written and the blend of historical events and historical research of Austin 's life and times is done to perfection. Great mystery with historical context.

I found myself checking to see which characters were historical and which were fictional a few times. Written in the style of Jane Austen, of course, with maybe a bit of sass and modernization.

I enjoyed this period piece but found it a little over the top in its descriptions. I wanted the story to move along at a faster pace in many parts of the book.

I liked this book for its familiarity with time and place. It seems to fit very securely in the Austen Canon. I have also read a good many of the other books in the series, and enjoyed them as well. As a long time fan of Jane Austen (and also Georgette Heyer), this book was a satisfying read and well-crafted.

For those of you who have loved Ms. Barron's series of Jane Austen mystery novels (myself included,) this 10th book in the series won't disappoint. For those of you who are simply Jane Austen fans who crave more 'Jane' then you will also love this novel. I won't summarize the plot as others have done an excellent job of laying it out in their reviews. I will say that the characters are well drawn and fascinating. Not only do we get more of our beloved Jane, but we see her against the glittering backdrop of Brighton where she meets such infamous people as Lord Byron, Lady Caroline Lamb, and even Prinny himself. The period detail is rich and getting to see into Jane's world, spending time with her worldly and kind brother Henry, saying goodbye to her beloved sister in law, Eliza, and even reconnecting with Desdemona is such a pleasure. The dialogue is first rate and reads true to the times. The insights that Desdemona reveals to Jane regarding her uncle are poignant and yet without their chance reunion, Jane might never have known his feelings were so deep. The mystery is interesting with plenty of suspects and revelations unfolding. The characters of Lord Byron and Lady Caro were disturbing to say the least, but led me to read more about them. The story dragged a little toward the end, but then things picked up and the mystery was resolved. Perhaps a bit too much of Lord Byron's poetry-I didn't care for it-too overwrought for my taste, but a fascinating glimpse of him nonetheless.

I've missed Jane since the 9th book, and so I didn't want this book to end. Spending this time with Jane as written by Ms. Barron is like visiting with an old friend. I so look forward to the next book and can only hope Ms. Barron writes faster! In the meantime I recommend this book very highly, and in fact the entire series is wonderful.
