Publisher Description

‘Ms Conroy’s writing is fresh and entertaining, it’s like an episode of Miss Fisher Murder Mysteries sprinkled with what I can only describe as a good old-fashioned Miss Marple.’ Reader review ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

When the masquerade ball of the season becomes the perfect opportunity to commit murder, can Lady Alkmene and Jake Dubois unmask the killer?

Lady Alkmene has always loved grand parties, but when she receives an invitation to a masked ball thrown by Franklin Hargrove – oil magnate, aviation enthusiast and father of her best friend, Denise – she’s never seen such luxury. The estate is lit up with Chinese lanterns in the gardens, boats operated by footmen float across the pond and the guest list features the distinguished, rich and powerful.

But below the glamour, evil is lurking. When a dead body is discovered, and an innocent servant accused of the crime, Lady Alkmene throws off her mask to find the true killer. But with her sleuthing partner, Jake Dubois, hiding something from her, Lady Alkmene's investigation puts her in increasing danger.

Can she catch the killer single-handed or will the denouement become her own undoing?

The twenties have never been so dangerous! Join Lady Alkmene on her hunt for missing heirs, stolen diamonds and legendary treasures in the Lady Alkmene Mysteries:

1. A Proposal to Die For
2. Diamonds of Death
3. Deadly Treasures
4. A Fatal Masquerade

Packed with glamour, danger, eccentric characters and atmospheric locations, each book can be read as standalone and in random order.

About the author

VIVIAN CONROY discovered Agatha Christie at thirteen and devoured all the Poirot and Miss Marple stories. Even more fun than reading was thinking up her own fog-filled alleys, missing heirs and priceless artefacts. So Vivian created feisty Lady Alkmene and reporter Jake Dubois sleuthing in 1920s’ London and the countryside, first appearing in A Proposal to Die For.
