Meet the Bright Young Things, the rabblerousing hedonists of the 1920s whose treasure hunts were a media obsession. One such game takes place at the 18th birthday party of Pamela Mitford, but ends in tragedy as cruel, charismatic Adrian Curtis is pushed to his death from the church neighbouring the Mitford home.

The police quickly identify the killer as a maid, Dulcie. But Louisa Cannon, chaperone to the Mitford girls and a former criminal herself, believes Dulcie to be innocent, and sets out to clear the girl’s name … all while the real killer may only be steps away

Thank you very much, plum, for the wonderful box of books and goodies the postman brought me. The Christmas card is on the door where we display them and the two wrapped surprises are under the Christmas tree. Yes, we've already decorated the house this year, started on the 1st, far, far earlier than we normally would . . . but it's not been a normal year - and we all need all the colour and light we can get as the days get darker and more wintry!

With such cover references as Bright Young Things, the Mitfords, the 1920s . . . well, how could I resist? Sounds delightful. Thank you :-)

An interesting and entertaining murder mystery featuring the Bright Young Things of the 1920s, with a numerous cast of more lowly characters . . . I enjoyed it and would read more from the series if they came my way - but doubt I'll go looking for them . . .
Thanks again, plum :-)

Dropped through my letterbox from my friend and neighbour Nu-Knees.
I couldn't resit reading a few pages as it looks like a good read.
It's waiting now until I finish my current book.
Eventually got back to reading this. I realised that it is a sequel but it didn't spoil the story. An interesting bit of social history as well as a murder mystery.
