|Three Tempting Tales of Lord Larry
What to do about Lord Larry? The man has more lives than a cat! The poor
scoundrel starts out facing a horrible death, so it hardly seems possible that
he'll find a happy ending. He does, though, and all those around him seem to
suffer the same fate. Follow Lord Larry through the plots and the schemes to
discover one undeniable fact: true love is the greatest conspiracy of all.
"The Delicate Plot to Bury Lord Larry"
Miss Netta Maitland really doesn't want to marry Lord Larry. It's his cousin, Lord
Gladbourne, who makes her heart beat faster, but he can't see her as anything more
than a childhood friend. What's a love-lorn lady to do? She'll help Larry fake his
own death, of course! Perhaps a pretend shooting, or explosion, or attempted
strangulation will finally allow Gladbourne to see her in a more romantic light. Some
days it's just murder for a lady to get what she wants.
Originally published in the Fifty Ways to Kill Your Larry short story anthology.
