Amory Ames is a wealthy young woman who questions her marriage to her notoriously charming playboy husband, Milo. Looking for a change, she accepts a request for help from her former fiancé, Gil Trent. Amory accompanies Gil to the luxurious Brightwell Hotel in an attempt to circumvent the marriage of his sister, Emmeline, to Rupert Howe, a disreputable ladies’ man. Amory sees in the situation a grim reflection of her own floundering marriage. There is more than her happiness at stake, however, when Rupert is murdered and Gil is arrested for the crime. Amory is determined to prove his innocence and find the real killer. As the stakes grow higher and the line between friend and foe becomes less clear, Amory must decide where her heart lies and catch the killer before she, too, becomes a victim.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“It’s all very Downton Abbey…Weaver lays the foundation for a solid series in her first novel as she channels the ambiance and spirit of British society during the post–World War I years.” Associated Press
“With a profound nod to the golden age of the British whodunit, Weaver creates a classic mystery, complete with a fashionable setting, a cast of upper-crust Brits and witty prose.” Richmond Times-Dispatch
“Fans of plucky female amateur sleuths will welcome Amory Ames, the heroine of Weaver’s pleasing debut set in 1932 England…the affable Amory could carry a series.” Publishers Weekly
“This debut novel by a librarian lays the foundation for a stylish series with Milo and Amory channeling Nick and Nora Charles.” Booklist
“A spunky heroine, a tense romance and red herrings galore make Weaver’s debut a pleasant read for nostalgia buffs who miss Agatha Christie.” Kirkus Reviews
