Inhaltsangabe

The second in the best-selling The Mitford Murders series of Golden Age-style crime novels, soon to be a major TV drama from the makers of The Crown. 

As the glamour of the Bright Young Things crashes into the world of the Mitford sisters, their maid, Louisa Cannon, finds herself at the scene of a gripping murder mystery. 

Meet the Bright Young Things, the rabble-rousing hedonists of the 1920s whose treasure hunts were a media obsession. One such game takes place at the 18th birthday party of Pamela Mitford but ends in tragedy as cruel, charismatic Adrian Curtis is pushed to his death from the church neighbouring the Mitford home. 

The police quickly identify the killer as a maid, Dulcie. But Louisa Cannon, chaperone to the Mitford girls and a former criminal herself, believes Dulcie to be innocent and sets out to clear the girl's name...all while the real killer may be only steps away.

Downton Abbey als Kriminalfall

Der Reiz dieses Whodunnit liegt weniger in atemberaubendem Nervenkitzel als in den schönen Milieustudien im England der 20 er Jahre. Man kommt sich vor wie bei Downton Abbey. Der Kriminalfall entwickelt sich gemächlich und ohne größere Adrenalinausschüttungen. Super gelesen!
