Meet the Bright Young Things, the rabble-rousing hedonists of the 1920s whose outrageous treasure hunts were a media obsession. One such game takes place at the 18th birthday party of Pamela Mitford, but ends in tragedy as the charismatic yet cruel Adrian Curtis is pushed to his death from atop the church next door. The police identify the maid Dulcie as the killer, 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, even as the real killer may only be steps away. Following The Mitford Murders, this second novel in the series is the work of Jessica Fellowes, niece and frequent collaborator of Downton Abbey creator Julian Fellowes.
