: This Sidewise Award-winning series starring detective Lord Darcy and his sorcerer sidekick, Sean O Lochlainn, takes us into an alternate reality where Richard the Lionheartâs descendants rule the Anglo-French Empire and the laws of magic have developed in place of the laws of physics. Murder and Magic, comprised of the first four stories of the acclaimed Lord Darcy series, finds Lord Darcy solving murders using his wits, a keen eye for observation, and a few choice magic tricks. In âThe Eyes Have it,â Lord Darcy must figure out who killed the taciturn playboy, the Count DâEvreux. In the political thriller âA Case of Identity,â Lord Darcy picks apart the disappearance of the Marquis of Cherbourg, especially mysterious considering the escalating cold war with Poland. Lord Darcy and Master Sean investigate a body coated in blue paint already occupying a coffin built for the late Duke of Kent in âThe Muddle of the Woad.â Literary humor is at the heart of âIn a Stretch of the Imagination,â where the head of an important publishing house commits suicide under suspicious circumstances.
