Summary
While extensive repairs are being made to Ferndean, their rural home, Jane and Edward accept an invitation from their friend Lucy Brayton to stay with her in London. Jane is reluctant to abandon their peaceful life in the countryside, but Edward{u2019}s damaged vision has grown worse. She hopes that time in the capital will buoy his spirits and give him the chance to receive treatment from an ocular specialist. Once in London, the Rochesters accompany Lucy to the Italian Opera House. But there is more drama in the audience than on stage{u2014}Jane not only unexpectedly finds herself in the presence of King George and his mistress, Lady Conygham, she also encounters an old nemesis in the form of Lady Ingram (whose daughter, Blanche, once hoped to wed Edward herself). The aging dowager deals both Jane and Lucy a very public snub; hoping to mitigate the social damage caused by this, Lucy insists on visiting the Ingrams the next day. The visit goes poorly from the start{u2014}and ends with Lady Ingram dropping dead in the midst of taking tea. It soon becomes clear that the dowager{u2019}s death was an unnatural one, and Jane must set her considerable intelligence to the problem of solving it{u2014}and why the throne appears to have an interest
