A glamorous American millionairess, Alice de Janzé scandalized 1920s Paris when she left her aristocratic French husband for an English lover (whom she later tried to kill in a failed murder-suicide). In the British colony in Kenya known as Happy Valley, she became the lover of notorious womanizer Joss Hay, Lord Erroll. In 1941, Erroll was found shot in his car on an isolated road—the unsolved murder at the center of James Fox's White Mischief. Paul Spicer, whose mother was Alice's confidante, pieces together what may have happened that fateful evening.
