In this mystery by the author of Crooked Herring, a lawyer in Cromwell’s England receives dangerous info that could stop a murder—or get him killed. John Grey is a newly minted lawyer and would-be ladies’ man with a bad habit of poking his nose into other people’s business and getting tangled up in intrigue. That’s unfortunate, because a mis-delivered letter from royalists has left Grey with more information about a murderous plot than it’s entirely safe to know. Can Grey prevent the murder? And of infinitely more importance, can he keep his mouth shut long enough to save his own skin?Praise for A Masterpiece of Corruption“Tyler cleverly marries plot and period in his sequel to A Cruel Necessity set during the protectorate of Oliver Cromwell . . .. Tyler’s judicious use of dry humor enhances a page-turning and plausible story line.” —Publishers Weekly“A dizzying whirl of plot and counterplot.” —The Guardian (UK)

But she gets a rude introduction to frontier living when she encounters a drunken cowboy named Gene Stewart. Though his rough demeanor is a shock to Madeline’s refined sensibilities, she comes to realize that he means no harm—and soon learns there are far worse characters for her to worry about. There are some bad men who would do anything to see Alfred run off his land. While Gene tries to prove to Madeline that he can change for the better, tensions in El Cajon are on the rise. And when violence breaks out, Madeline discovers courage matters a lot more than manners on the frontier
