Glitz, glamour-and murder. Can the unflappable Lady Marigold outwit and outsmart a killer before more lives are derailed? Istanbul, 1922. Lady Marigold Grey-former British spy and daring adventuress-sets out for England after inadvertently robbing her cousin of his inheritance. A long and dreary train journey lies ahead, but where Marigold goes, trouble follows. When the director of the train is murdered-and false evidence linking her to his death emerges-Marigold suddenly finds herself on the fast-track to becoming a prime suspect. With the help of her fashion-loving German assistant, overly protective English butler and troublemaking fluffy white terrier, Marigold resolves to clear her name and stop the killer in their tracks. The only problem is, that's easier said than done-especially when everyone from an ice-sculpting French chef to an acid-tongued prima ballerina has a motive for murder. To make matters worse, the annoyingly handsome police detective on board not only seems impervious to her charms-he's also determined to prove she engineered the crime. As she unravels the clues, Marigold is sure she's on the right track-but when things go off the rails, she realises the killer will stop at nothing to destroy her and the people she loves. Can Lady Marigold solve the case before the killer gives her a ticket to ride? A light-hearted and charming 1920s cozy mystery featuring a smart, sassy sleuth, adorable dog, found family, high society, fashion and a will they or won't they, opposites attract romance. You'll be hooked from beginning till end reading the first book in the Lady Marigold's 1920s Murder Mystery series.

Equal parts Sherlock Holmes and P.G. Wodehouse, Charles Finch's debut mystery A Beautiful Blue Death introduces a wonderfully appealing gentleman detective in Victorian London who investigates crime as a diversion from his life of leisure. Charles Lenox, Victorian gentleman and armchair explorer, likes nothing more than to relax in his private study with a cup of tea, a roaring fire and a good book. But when his lifelong friend Lady Jane asks for his help, Lenox cannot resist the chance to unravel a mystery. Prudence Smith, one of Jane's former servants, is dead of an apparent suicide. But Lenox suspects something far more sinister: murder, by a rare and deadly poison. The grand house where the girl worked is full of suspects, and though Prue had dabbled with the hearts of more than a few men, Lenox is baffled by the motive for the girl's death. When another body turns up during the London season's most fashionable ball, Lenox must untangle a web of loyalties and animosities. Was it jealousy that killed Prudence Smith? Or was it something else entirely? And can Lenox find the answer before the killer strikes again—this time, disturbingly close to home?
