A ruined abbey on a beautiful estate in Derbyshire, a murdered peer, and a most unlikely romance make New York Times bestseller Tasha Alexander’s new novel Behind the Shattered Glass absolutely irresistible

Anglemore Park is the ancestral home of Lady Emily Hargreave’s husband Colin. But the stately calm of country life is destroyed when their neighbor, the Marquess of Montagu, bursts through the French doors from the garden and falls down dead in front of the shocked gathering.  But who has a motive for murdering the young aristocrat?  The lovely cousin who was threatened by his engagement, the Oxford friend he falsely accused of cheating, the scheming vicar’s daughter he shamelessly seduced or the relative no one knew existed who appears to claim the Montagu title?  Who is the mysterious woman seen walking with him moments before he was brutally attacked? 

The trail takes readers into the gilded world of a British manor house and below stairs to the servants who know all the secrets. One family’s hidden past and a forbidden passion are the clues to a puzzle only Lady Emily can solve.

Book Excerpts

Read an Excerpt

“This, Emily, goes beyond bad manners.” Lady Catherine Bromley squared her shoulders, shook her head without displacing a single silver hair, and glowered at me, her only daughter. “One cannot have gentlemen falling down dead in the library, especially on an eighteenth-century Axminster carpet! It is entirely ruined; there is no possibility that bloodstain will come out. Such a thing would never be tolerated at Darnley House. What would your father say? I thank heaven that estate business took him home before he could see this.

Praise for Behind the Shattered Glass

Praise for Tasha Alexander:

“Author Tasha Alexander is one to watch—and read. . . . despite her cliffhanger climaxes and witty repartee, there's a depth of sensitivity which sets her apart.”—The Huffington Post on Dangerous to Know

“With wisps of darkness, shadows of a ghost story and embers of heightened Freudian themes, Dangerous to Know is the perfect novel to curl up with and chase away the world.”—Examiner.com

“Infused with wit and charm, with just the right amounts of danger, romance and detection blended in.”—Denver Post on Tears of Pearl

“[Tears of Pearl] will please readers of Anne Perry, Laurie R. King, and Deanna Raybourn seeking a new fan-favorite author.”—Library Journal on Tears of Pearl

“A thoroughly enjoyable adventure with both historical texture and emotional depth.”—Anne Perry, New York Times bestselling author on A Fatal Waltz

“Alexander’s sweetly choreographed plot dances between her wonderfully drawn sleuth, Lady Ashton, and Victorian high society.”—Julie Spencer-Fleming, Edgar Award finalist and author of All Mortal Flesh on A Poisoned Season

“Alexander excels in depicting the social mores of a society uncomfortable with the independence of women, and deftly allows the plot to develop in tandem with Emily’s growth.”—The Baltimore Sun on And Only to Deceive
