Abstract:

Ah, the London Debutante Season: Giggles and tea-dances, white dresses and inappropriate romances. And much too much champagne. And, apparently, a blackmailer, which is where Inspector Roderick Alleyn comes in. The social whirl is decidedly not Alleyn<U+2019>s environment, so he brings in an assistant in the form of Lord “Bunchy” Gospell, everybody<U+2019>s favorite uncle. Bunchy is more than loveable; he<U+2019>s also got some serious sleuthing skills. But before he can unmask the blackmailer, a murder is announced. And everyone suddenly stops giggling.
