The first book in the new Lady Alkmene Callender Mystery series
A murderous beginning
With her father away in India, Lady Alkmene Callender finds being left to her own devices in London intolerably dull, until the glamorous Broadway star Evelyn Steinbeck arrives in town! Gossip abounds about the New York socialite, but when Ms Steinbeck’s wealthy uncle, Silas Norwhich, is found dead Lady Alkmene finds her interest is piqued. Because this death sounds a lot to her like murder…
Desperate to uncover the truth, Lady Alkmene begins to look into Ms Steinbeck’s past – only to be hampered by the arrival of journalist, Jake Dubois – who believes she is merely an amateur lady-detective meddling in matters she knows nothing about!
But Lady Alkmene refuses to be deterred from the case and together they dig deeper, only to discover that some secrets should never come to light…
The twenties have never been so dangerous

1. A Proposal to Die For
2. Diamonds of Death
3. Deadly Treasures
A well done cozy mystery. London in the 1920’s is a pretty fabulous time to read about. I enjoyed the main characters and am looking forward to seeing where they go in the other books in this series.
Thank you, Netgalley, for a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
3.5 out of 5 stars.
