Espionage, intrigue . . . murder . . .
It's 1924 and war widow fashionista Ginger Gold's new Regent Street dress shop, Feathers & Flair, is the talk of the London fashion district attracting aristocrats from Paris to Berlin to Moscow.
Ginger is offered her first job as a private detective when her sister-in-law's stage actor friend goes missing, and though the dress shop takes most of her time, Ginger takes the case.
But when a Russian grand duchess dies at the shop's official grand opening event, Ginger ignores the missing person to chase a killer. It's a decision she will live to regret.
Felicia, Ginger’s sister-in-law, asks for Ginger’s help in finding in hunting down a missing actor, but that is rather left to the side when someone is killed at an event Ginger is hosting at her dress shop, Feathers & Flair. There’s a lot going on here, missing actors, a stolen necklace, a dead society lady, a coded message.
Ginger is her usual clever, fashionable self. Once again, she’s working with Chief Inspector Basil Reed -whose wife is back in the picture. I could do without the “will they – won’t they” but looking ahead it seems like that situation will be resolved soon.
It’s a fun mystery with I enjoy the ’20s details. I’ve been enjoying listening to the audio versions of this series. They’re relatively short and lively.
