About the Book
A murdered young woman. Her fiancé blamed for the crime. Can Kitty catch the killer before her beloved swings from the wrong end of a rope?
England, 1924. With business booming at the Ladies of Distinction Detective Agency, Kitty Worthington couldn’t be happier. But then she gets a cryptic summons from her sister urging her to come to Oxford. An urgent matter threatens someone Kitty holds dear.
Soon, Kitty learns a murder victim has been discovered, a young woman with close ties to Kitty’s fiancé, Chief Detective Inspector Robert Crawford. When alarming testimony at the inquest brands him the murderer, Kitty urges him to speak out. But claiming the truth will prevail, he refuses to defend himself.
As additional facts are revealed, and matters grow from bad to worse, Kitty sets out to investigate. Together with her team of sleuths, they follow a trail of secrets and lies, conspiracies and intrigues through the cobblestone streets and towering spires of Oxford to unearth a murderer who’s evaded justice too long. For if they don’t discover the truth, her beloved may very well hang from a noose.
