|Plot Summary of Jane and the Wandering Eye|
Regency author Jane Austen is becoming bored with Bath until her Gentleman Rogue, Lord Harold Trowbridge, asks her to discreetly observe his neice who is avoiding the attentions of the horrible Earl of Swithin. During the course of her "observation" at a dance, a man is discovered stabbed - apparently by the neice's attractive brother. The only clue is a pendant containing the portrait of an eye. Jane, ever the sleuth, decides to discover the true killer among the high classes of Bath as well as the illustrious actors at the Theatre Royal.
