Praise for Ten Lords A-Leaping 'Edwards ably skewers fox-hunters and anti-fox hunters alike, as well as a slew of other targets in this farcical and appealing mystery.' -Publishers Weekly 'Acerbic narration, ready wit, strong characterization, and comic emphasis on food....An appealing follow-up to Matricide at St. Martin's.' -Library Journal The House of Lords will never be the same. Disinclined to watch her language or moderate her manners, 'Jack' Troutbeck-assisted by her old friend Robert Amiss-plots vigorously with others to scupper an anti-hunting bill of which she violently disapproves. But she hadn't expected the campaign of intimidation mounted by the animal activists and the attempt on the life of one of her allies. And now there are scenes of horrifying carnage amongst the peers.... Dr. Ruth Dudley Edwards was born in Dublin, Ireland, and now lives in England, where she has been a teacher, a Cambridge postgraduate student, a marketing executive, a civil servant and, finally, a freelance writer, journalist, and broadcaster. She uses her knowledge of the British establishment in her satirical crime novels targeting (so far) the civil service, gentlemen's clubs, Cambridge colleges, the House of Lords, the Church of England, publishing, literary prizes and-always-political correctness. www.ruthdudleyedwards.com
