The Double V Mysteries series begins in the spring of 1949 in Hartford, Connecticut, when a recent ex-con finds his fortunes, or misfortunes, linked with a recent widow whose husband is murdered. Elmer Vartanian's and Juliet Van Allen's (their surnames are the Double V of the series title) share a mutually intriguing crime-solving partnership that continues from Cadmium Yellow, Blood Red, the first book in the series; through a New Year's Eve party in a snowbound mansion in Speak Out Before You Die; and a horse show in Dismount and Murder in the summer of 1950.
This eBook "box set" is comprised of those first three books in the series.
If you like the romance and charm of a classic film, this "cozy noir" will remind you of an era when character-driven stories were elegant, subtle, and even a grim dark alley might lead to the glamour of evening dress and a champagne cocktail.
