About this item

One of The Boston Globe's Best Mysteries of 2011  "Agatha Christie lives! You’ll love this book." —John Lescroart  Welcome to Edinburgh, 1926. Dandy Gilver, a wealthy and witty aristocrat (and sometimes amateur sleuth) receives a letter from Lollie Balfour, who insists that her husband of five years is having her followed and her mail is being steamed open. The only way for Dandy to help is by pretending to applying for a job as a lady’s maid in Lollie’s house. Dandy gets a crash course from her own maid and arrives at 31 Heriot Row, ready to put all of her detection skills to good use. Why does Mr. Balfour want to get rid of his wife? And can Dandy stay in disguise long enough to evade the villains?   Charming and funny, Dandy Gilver is an irresistible sleuth who is sure to win over mystery lovers everywhere.



About the Author

Catriona McPherson

Hello and thanks for stopping by my Amazon page. I'm a crime-fiction writer (and reader and super-fan) . I write all over the genre: modern psychological thrillers - mostly set in Scotland, although I did go to Yorkshire one (AS SHE LEFT IT) ; preposterous 1930s detective stories with a gently-born lady sleuth (AFTER THE ARMISTICE BALL is the first) ; and comedies set in a barely-fictionalised version of my home-town in California, where the heroine says everything I've always thought and never mentioned . . .You can find me at www.catrionamcpherson.com. I'm on Facebook most days too, talking about books I'm writing, books I'm reading, and meat pies I'm eating. On Twitter (more books and some pies) , I'm @CatrionaMcP.Happy reading, whatever you're reading,Cx
