General Well’ngone in Love
by Libi Astaire
There’s trouble afoot in Regency London’s Jewish community, and no one to stop the crimes—until wealthy-widower-turned-sleuth Mr. Ezra Melamed teams up with an unlikely pair: General Well’ngone and the Earl of Gravel Lane, the leaders of a gang of young Jewish pickpockets.
In this short story set during the Frost Fair of 1814, a recently orphaned boy disappears, seemingly off the face of the earth. Mr. Melamed enlists the aid of General Well’ngone, who has his own reason for wishing to find the missing child—the General has fallen in love with the boy’s older sister.

Reviews of General Well’ngone In Love
“I love the young ‘criminal’ element in Libi Astaire’s books, so reading a story focused on General Well’ngone was sheer delight. The plot is good, the writing excellent, and the characters heartwarming” —Amazon.com
