In A Gentleman’s Guide to Love and Murder, Monty Navarro, a commoner in Great Britain, discovers that he can really move up in life if only he can get past the eight others in front of him who are ready to inherit the Earldom of Highhurst. After all, technically there is only one thing in his way, the family members of the odious D’Ysquith family, all of whom are in the line of inheritance. Monty decides to murder each one, while keeping his mistress, Sibella Hallward, courting the comely young Phoebe D’Ysquith and securing his future.
