A house party in Devon, England takes a turn for the murderous.
Lady Rample and her eccentric Aunt Butty escape the broiling heat of a London summer for the cooler climes of the English countryside. But the idyllic holiday is not all cocktails and lawn croquet. And when a man is found dead in their host’s study, she knows there’s more going on than a simple break-in.
With spies lurking in the bushes, her maid locked up in the local jail, and danger at every turn, Lady Rample is not one to give up or give in when there’s a mystery afoot. Armed with cocktails, lipstick, and plenty of sex appeal, she’s going to catch the spies, solve the murder, and set things right. Unless the killer gets to her first.
From the author of Lady Rample Steps Out comes the delightful second installment of the Lady Rample Mysteries set in 1930s jazz-era London.
