From a critically acclaimed author comes another hilarious mystery set in 1930s London, featuring penniless aristocrat Lady Georgiana, a feisty new heroine to delight a legion of Anglophile readers (Jacqueline Winspear).
1930s London. Poor Lady Georgiana-thirty-fourth in line to the throne-has nothing to serve her Bavarian princess houseguest, even though the Queen of England has requested that she entertain her. Then there's the matter of the body in the bookshop and the princess's unwitting involvement with the Communist party. It's enough to drive a girl mad.
