Heyer's novels are great - they're all wonderfully researched romps in the 19th century, full of love and adventure. This book however spends too little time on the characters you want to know more of (i.e. Lord Worth) and too much time on detailed explanations of boxing, gambling and cock fighting scenarios. A slight disappointment.
