** spoiler alert ** "Youthful Indiscretion" is a novella set between the first two books of Edmondson's "Very English Murder" series. While story is short, it covers a lot of ground and definitely should be read in order, as it impacts the storyline. Freya Wryton wants the truth behind a letter written to her dead uncle. Who was the author and why was she so important to him? Several members of her family warn her off. No good comes from digging up the past. But she's charges forward, bringing Hugo Hawksworth along on her research trip to Oxford. What she learns changes what she thinks she knows of her ruthless dead uncle and the future of the Selchesters.

Everyone is worried about Lady Sonia's plans to sell the old Selchester Castle and grumpy about showing it to hotel developers. Hugo is busy researching a scientist that might have leaked atomic secrets to the Russians. It's very Cold War Britain with an odd Catholic flavor.
