Jane Eyre, Licensed to Kill

I was thinking today how I haven't read any of Laura Joh Rowland's samurai detective novels lately, so I went to her website. Not only are there two new ones that I need to check out, but she's also publishing a novel called "The Secret Adventures of Charlotte Brontë" in April.

According to the site, it's "an epic, world-at-stake thriller starring the legendary 19th century author and her equally famous family. It’s a tour of Victorian England from gutter to palace, featuring a hero who combines Mr. Rochester with Agent 007 and a villain whose devious schemes threaten the very fabric of the British Empire. Charlotte Brontë is plunged headlong into the sort of thrilling adventures and passionate romance she never actually experienced, but secretly craved." That could be interesting.
