The Hour of Fatality: A Jane Rochester Mystery
Jane Eyre’s story continues…with a mysterious rumor and a dangerous secret. When Jane finds a stranger in the woods, with a bullet wound in his chest, she must unravel a dangerous web of secrets surrounding Blanche Ingram and her brother. If she fails, it may prove to be her most fatal hour.
A historical mystery set in 19th century England.
Charlotte Bronte’s literary heroine, Jane Eyre, is married at last to Mr. Rochester. With Thornfield Hall destroyed by fire, they have no home to go to except Ferndean Manor. To Jane it is the perfect escape for a storm-tossed couple, but it cannot hide them from the wings of trouble.
Mr. Rochester’s faithful land agent has disappeared with nothing but a letter as an explanation. Local tales abound regarding Thornfield Hall, but Jane is unable to investigate when she is struck down by typhoid fever. With the aid of Diana Rivers, they flee illness to Ingram Park, only to find a far more deadly mystery waiting for them…
A hidden disaster lies in wait for the Ingram household, and Jane must rely on her own abilities, and on the long experience of Mr. Rochester, to uncover the truth.
