Description

The scene is set for murder...and Kitty Underhay’s partner has been cast as the killer.

Late summer 1933. After a quarrel with too-plucky-for-her-own-good amateur sleuth Kitty Underhay, dashing ex-army captain Matthew Bryant is nursing his wounds, and a tumbler of brandy, when there’s a heavy knock at the door and he finds himself arrested for murder. The body of aspiring actress Pearl Bright has been found, strangled with one of Matt’s own bootlaces, and the evidence seems to be stacked against him. 

The local constabulary might have locked Matt up, but before they can throw away the key, Kitty hears the news and hies to his aid, determined to prove his innocence. And when her investigations lead her to the home of retired theater impresario Stanley Davenport, and the local amateur dramatics society, Kitty uncovers a web of deceit that stretches far beyond the stage make-up. But Kitty’s digging is bringing her to the attention of the killer. Without her partner in crime-fighting, can Kitty expose them and clear Matt’s name? Or will it be curtains for them both? 

A gripping Golden Age cozy murder mystery, perfect for fans of Agatha Christie, T. E. Kinsey and Lee Strauss.

Terrific narration brings characters to life

Mysterious cast of characters combined with potential romance makes this a good start to the series. Great writing.

interesting yet boring at times

more love-romance at times than mystery. was hoping Kitty would grow up a bit. also wishing the age difference would stop being pointed out between the two "love-birdies". makes him a stereotype of a older dirty man cradle robbing while she is a dewy eyed virgin waiting for marriage. ok story, plot used before. Kitty needs to grow up if she is taking over for her grandmother.

Good story, conclusion needs development

This one had a good plot and nicely developed characters, but needed more expository at the end- why was stated but it just felt too abrupt. I also think that Kitty WOULD have definite expectations if Matt kissed her in 1933. Times have changed.
